A first-half diving header from Gabriel Jesus proved enough for Tite's charges to hit back at the first time of asking after being humiliated by Die Mannschaft 7-1 in the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

There was just 179 seconds between the German's second goal and their fifth, as Brazil suffered a total collective meltdown.

"We are in a building period and emotionally it will be important".

Eight minutes are on the clock for you to name the starting XIs (plus the three substitutes both sides used).

Brazil threatened in the 11th minute-oddly when the first of Germany's seven goals was scored in 2014-with Philippe Coutinho possessing deep in the Germany box, but he elected to lay it off instead of fire at goal from a tight angle, and Germany cleared the danger.

"The 7-1 game is the most recent game".

"Now Brazil may have some thoughts of revenge but you can not really do that because you can not bring that semi-final back".

Paris Saint Germain forward Neymar, who joined the French club from Barcelona for a world-record €222 million previous year, will miss the friendly because he is recovering from an operation on his injured foot.

The previously under-worked Allison tipped over Draxler's fierce drive in stoppage time to ensure Brazil held on for a memorable win. "The whole of Coutinho's work is very strong".

Germany almost stole a draw in the 92nd minute when Toni Kroos found space to shoot, but goalkeeper Alisson did well to save.

Having conceded only five goals in 18 fixtures since Tite took over in June 2016, the South Americans will prove a far more hard nut to crack for a home team that has scored just three times in their previous three. Check out the confirmed team news below. They have really good people, my (Real Madrid) team-mate Casemiro is doing well - they have come together well.

Kroos' words are backed up by the fact that Brazil became the first nation to qualify for the 2018 World Cup when they beat Paraguay 3-0 in March 2017.

"The 7-1 from the World Cup is like a ghost".

The five-times world champions kick off their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17 before facing Costa Rica and Serbia.

The two teams could potentially face each other as early as the Round of 16, depending on results.
