And Neymar showed his importance to the Brazil tem as it is playing for its 6th FIFA World cup title. Neymar scored a splendid goal after 68th minutes of the match in his first outing of the season.

In the first half relatively there were few chances and the spirit within the game was not understated and Ivan Perisic of Croatia and Fernandinho of Brazil were booked by the referee in a crabby end to the first half.

The Brazilians were in desperate need of a goal when Firmino replaced Gabriel Jesus on the hour. After 68 minutes Neymar cut into the area, ahead of Sime Vrsaljko and Duje Caleta-Car with impressive close control before sending the ball inside the net. Neymar ran behind the goal, in front of Anfield's legendary Kop End, and punched the air in obvious delight as he was circled by his team-mates.

Roberto Firmino of Liverpool completed the victory by a goal in his home ground in stoppage time.

The world's most expensive player Neymar is talk of the sports world even before the FIFA world cup 's start.
