Goldman Sachs predicts Brazil will win the 2018 FIFA World Cup

Goldman Sachs predicts Brazil will win the 2018 FIFA World Cup

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has predicted that the Super Eagles will not qualify for the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Neymar scored a superb second-half goal as Brazil defeated Austria 3-0 in their final warm-up game ahead of the World Cup yesterday.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has enjoyed a seamless return to football after three months out with a broken foot, which he suffered in action for PSG back in February.

That goal puts him joint-third top goalscorer with Romario. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

The fun parts of the team are the players who surge forwards, dribble around opponents and score all of the goals but the key to this Brazil side is that they are balanced. We should note that Goldman also tipped Brazil in 2014 (forecasting a 3-1 win over Argentina in the final).

During the tournament's group stage, Brazil will play in Group E against Switzerland (June 17, Rostov-on-Don), Costa Rica (June 22, St. Petersburg) and Serbia (June 27, Moscow, Spartak Stadium).

England aim for World Cup quarter-finals
They have some talent, have a real desire and determination to play for England . It's a great challenge for every player to come in".

Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho scored the other goals for the five-times champions who showed great patience in the first half as they worked to break Austria down before turning on the style after the interval.

"I do not even know the limit of Neymar", Tite told reporters afterwards.

One young boy broke through security barriers and managed to get close to a group of Brazil players including Neymar, taking a photograph before being led away.

But Neuer made a swift recovery after a few setbacks and Löw included him in the squad for the World Cup. The Selecao will be favourites to progress and with Neymar back fit and firing will believe anything is possible.

Neymar and Gabriel Jesus were the prime instigators, rounding on Coutinho during the session.

It's true that Brazil's latest opponent, Austria, have consistently failed to qualify for the World Cup since 1998, and an ageing Croatia are not expected to pull off a rampaging campaign in Russian Federation 2018.
