“Any team would be relieved having such a player back,” defender Thiago Silva said after Sunday’s win at Anfield. “We are a great team, but Ney has that light. When the game gets tough, he steps up to the challenge.”

The first half was dominated by heavy marking. But after Neymar replaced Fernandinho, the five-time-World Cup champions were much more fluent and effective playing with the formation Neymar joining William and Gabriel Jesus up front that is likely to start at the World Cup.

Brazil fans, who appeared to be in the majority of the 35,000 fans at Anfield, were quiet in the first half but got noisier with Neymar’s appearance in the second half.
