Manchester City striker Jesus also insisted Tite's side are ready for the tournament.

"All the games before the World Cup were important to reach this level of performance," Jesus, who now has 10 international goals, told the Brazilian FA.

"Austria had quality and we knew it would not be easy. We managed to play, involve their team and make another big game. Not only was the attack well, the group went very well."

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.
