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.
