PSG’s superstar flickered in spells at Wembley and the five-time World Cup winners are not going to find the going easy at the tournament next summer

Much has been written about Brazil’s return to form, the resurgence of Jogo Bonito and the possibility of Tite leading the national team back to World Cup glory.

This was a chance then to demonstrate for the first time in front of a European audience that Brazil were worth considering as a threat in Russia 2018 following their 7-1 humiliation at the hands of Germany in the semi-finals on home soil three years ago.

There was no doubt that they dominated the game against England at Wembley but they still remain short of a crucial spark – Neymar apart – to consistently unlock teams at the top level.
