Brazil had spent 10 days preparing at Tottenham's training ground and beat Croatia 2-0 in Liverpool last week before Sunday's victory.

Jesus opened the scoring nine minutes before the break when he curled in from an angle after Marcelo's shot deflected into his path.

Neymar struck just after the hour as he sensationally bamboozled the Austria defence to score and Coutinho wrapped the victory up minutes later.

He joked about Austria's rough approach.

"We got ready for the UFC today, but it was good," he added. "Everyone was unharmed."
