BRAZIL head to Rus­sia as the out­right favourites, in no small part down to their favourable draw. Boss Tite (inset) and his Sele­cao have been placed in Group E, where they will take on Switzer­land, Costa Rica and Serbia. They look well-placed for a deep run in the com­pe­ti­tion, as they seek to ban­ish the mem­o­ries of the 7-1 semi-fi­nal loss to Ger­many in 2014. At the heart of their plans for a sixth World Cup crown is Ney­mar, the £200mil­lion PSG su­per­star. Back to fit­ness, he’s just 26 yet bagged his 55th in­ter­na­tional goal in the 3-0 warm-up win over Aus­tria. He’s an un­doubted world-class tal­ent who sets this Brazil side apart – and if you make him the corner­stone of your Five-a-side Live team, you can ex­pect to be re­warded.
