In a video doing rounds on social media, Brazilian superstar Neymar is seen breaking eggs on Coutinho’s head before his Brazilian teammates join him and pour flour and water on Co0utinho.

A surprised-looking Coutinho then laughs at the prank.

Neymar later got a taste of his own medicine when Marcelo and another Brazilian teammate also covered him in eggs and flour.

Brazil are set to begin their 2018 Fifa World Cup campaign with a clash against Switzerland on Sunday.
