Neymar makes spectacular return as Brazil beat Croatia 2-0

Neymar-Brazil GETTYWorld Cup 2018 Neymar will be hoping to fire Brazil to glory this summer

That would mean defender Thiago Silva, Brazil's captain at the 2014 World Cup, getting his place back in the starting lineup alongside Miranda, leaving his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Marquinhos out.

After his goal, Neymar made sure to head to the Brazil bench to embrace team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, who operated on his foot fracture three months ago.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino, on his home ground, completed the victory in stoppage time when he controlled a through ball on his chest and calmly beat the advancing keeper with a delicate lob.

The Croatian shared a moment with the PSG star at the end of the fixture, in which both exchanged shirts, as was seen in the video published by the Brazilian Federation.

"It is lovely to watch him play again, he is special, one of the best in the world", Modric said.

Neymar had spoken last month of his concerns about winning that race and described his rehabilitation as the biggest challenge of his career.

GitHub may soon join the Microsoft family - tech giant considers an acquisition
Microsoft, once opposed to that kind of open-source software development, is now one if the biggest contributors to GitHub. The Bloomberg report came just days after Business Insider reported that Microsoft had recently held talks to buy Github.

And Neymar needed just 23 minutes at Liverpool's Anfield ground to prove how important he is to Brazil's hopes of a sixth world title.

It always seemed unlikely he would be fully match fit in time for Brazil's opening Group E match against Switzerland on June 17. Brazil won that game 3-1 with two goals from Neymar.

Midfielder Renato Augusto, who plays more as a pacemaker, was injured earlier in the week during training and replaced by Manchester City's Fernandinho.

Brazil instantly appeared more threatening, with the PSG man linking up quickly with Jesus.

That means they might be forced into selling some of their most valuable assets this summer, and Neymar could be one of them.
