Neymar new hairstyle before the start of the world Cup

Posted June 21, 2018

Neymar returned to Brazil training at the World Cup on Wednesday, a day after quitting a session early due to an ankle issue.

Jesus had a quiet game against Switzerland in the 1-1 draw on Sunday and was replaced by Roberto Firmino in the second half.

Joao Castelo-Branco shares his thoughts on Brazil's statement that Neymar was given permission to leave training after he limped out of the session. A few moments later he finally made a decision to leave, kicking a ball away with his left foot before limping away beside the team doctor. But they have not beaten Germany in three attempts at various World Cups. "He saw the physio and will receive treatment today and tomorrow morning, and will resume training tomorrow afternoon", team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar was quoted as saying by the confederation.

Brazil will also face Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E, as they attempt to exorcise the demons of 2014.

Brazil star Neymar is nursing a sore ankle and limped out of training in Russian Federation.

Brazil may have struggled in their World Cup opener but their failure to beat Switzerland has not left the players worrying about qualifying for the knockout phase just yet, midfielder Philippe Coutinho said on Tuesday.

His own pedigree as a manager, limited to one Segunda Division campaign at Oviedo, is not particularly relevant here. Here's how you can watch the match and more. "We won't deviate an iota from our footballing concepts".

Brazil will be looking to avoid the pitfalls their fellow World Cup favourites Argentina, Spain and France fell into in their opening games when the five-times world champions take on a fiercely organised Switzerland team on Sunday.

"Nobody expected that. Not even him", Thiago Silva, a close friend of Neymar's and a club teammate at PSG, said in a report on Brazilian website Globoesporte.

"I am proud of my team, they never gave up and when we were able to go forward, we did very well, and I think it is an excellent start for the next games in the group stage", he said.

That may be something to do with one of the game's more impressive statistics.

"Yes, Switzerland hit us a lot. but all matches will be like this, I guess", Coutinho told reporters.
