Neymar limps off and sets off Brazil alarms

Man Utd transfer news Fred injury update revealed by Brazil boss Tite

Six months after his record-breaking transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar fractured his right foot in February in a match against Marseille.

Brazil wasted several chances to snatch a victor late in the game, and centre-back Thiago Silva acknowledged the team could have been more clinical in attack. However, the City sensation will keep his place ahead of Liverpool star Firmino tomorrow.

Newspaper O Globo described on its website the Brazilian national team's performance in the opening match on Sunday with Switzerland as "disappointing", reports Efe.

Despite the criticism and the pressure, Cuccittini told "Diario de Mariana" that Messi seems relaxed, calm, and confident.

Brazil travelled to Russian Federation after a triumphant set of results in their warm-up matches but were disappointing in their Group E opener on Sunday as a very solid Swiss side showed why they are now sixth in the FIFA rankings, reports Xinhua news agency.

"Neymar hasn't been bad, but he's been quiet", Brazilian TV analyst and former World Cup striker Walter Casagrande said.

For all the attacking talent available to Tite, Neymar remains the man Brazil turn to in times of need as the ball was shuffled out left to him time and again as the clock ran down. "Of course having him in our side is a big plus for us", said Coutinho. When he plays for us, it's a huge help.

"We want to win, it's a World Cup, but the coach is not going to play with the players' health". Brazil have a good team and collective quality to get themselves out of problems but Neymar tried to win the game on his own and he failed.

Once the factory is capable of that production figure, the CEO said Tesla can then begin producing the Model 3 short-range model . Tesla is dismissing more than 3,000 workers from its California headquarters and beyond, according to a report from Bloomberg.

A statement on the CBF Twitter account from Dr Lasmar said: "Neymar complained of ankle pains, due to the number of fouls suffered against Switzerland".

Mexico only lost one game in qualifying and have always reached at least the second round of every World Cup they have played.

As a result, Neymar has had limited game time going into Russian Federation, featuring in just their warm up wins over Croatia and Austria. Rather, it was linked to the fact that the forward was fouled repeatedly in Brazil's 1-1 tie with Switzerland on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the former Barcelona ace appears to have hacked back at his hair, after being mercilessly trolled for its "spaghetti" look.
