Brazil hopes to fly high at the 2018 World Cup as they attempt to banish terrible memories of their humiliating 7-1 semi-final drubbing by Germany on home soil four years ago.
Pivotal to hopes of claiming a sixth world title will be Neymar, who appears to be in good spirits on Saturday as he enjoyed some downtime together with his girlfriend Bruna Marquezine, Paris Saint-Germain teammate Thiago Silva, Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho and Renato Augusto of Beijing Guoan.
The plentiful sights of Rio de Janeiro were taken from a high vantage point in a helicopter as posted on Instagram by the player.
Brazil’s players are off duty now until Sunday morning, when they will arrange to travel to London for another training camp.
Brazil will be guests at Tottenham’s Hotspur Way between 28 May-8 June, using the newly-completed players’ Lodge. They take on Croatia in a warm-up friendly at Anfield on 3 June before meeting Austria in Vienna seven days later.
They will then move to Saint-Petersburg to play Costa Rica before heading to Moscow to trade tackles with Serbia.
