Neymar returns to practice, Brazil guarantees he is ready

Tite confirms Manchester United new boy Fred will miss Brazil's World Cup opener

Neymar suffered the lower-leg injury in Brazil's game against Switzerland on Sunday. "There is video of what happened and the referee could have seen it, but it didn't happen", Miranda said. But we ended with a draw. "We've analyzed our opponents in great depth, and I think Switzerland is the strongest team we are going to face at the moment".

The South Americans have also topped their group in every single World Cup since 1982, whereas Switzerland have topped their group only once previously at the World Cup, it was in 2006.

"Neymar is OK, of course".

Switzerland Coach Vladimir Petkovic described the incident against Miranda as an "ordinary challenge".

Coutinho had been handed a central role behind Neymar, on his first competitive game for four months, Gabriel Jesus and Willian in a line-up filled with attacking intent from coach Tite.

Second Test marred by ball-change controversy
Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal was charged for breaching Level 2.2.9 of the ICC Code OF Conduct. The Sri Lankans were told on Saturday that play could not continue with the existing ball.

"I got to know Neymar personally at the Olympics". That is very important. "They did and it worked". The Brazilian federation even took their complaints to FIFA. Although Rodrigo Lamer said Neymar wouldn't receive any special treatment as he was "fully fit", the player was only able to complete a small part of the session.

Tite's men ended as they had begun with a series of chances for a late victor as Neymar and Roberto Firmino headed straight at Sommer before Miranda dragged a shot inches wide. We had 20 finishes but we should have make the goalkeeper work harder.

Brazil need to defeat Costa Rica, who lost to Serbia in their opener, to strengthen their chances of moving on from the group stage. Goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who plays for Real Madrid, couldn't reach it.

The world's most expensive player then set alarm bells ringing when he hobbled out of training on Tuesday in full view of the cameras.

"Brazilians only accept first place, not like some other teams, other countries with tradition, they sometimes land second, third or fourth place and are celebrated. We have another opportunity", Coutinho added.
