Neymar chops of spaghetti locks before Costa Rica game

  • Neymar to start Brazil v Costa Rica, coach Tite confirms

However, Senegal must first get past a Samurai Blue squad that stunned Colombia with a 2-1 victory as a +395 bet to join them atop the Group H table, and have scored six total goals during a brief-but-impressive two-match win streak.

Tite, though, strongly refuted reports he has asked Neymar to play more in the team's best interests.

"I don't like to personalise it, but absolutely not", Tite told a Brazilian reporter.

"I'm not going to take away from him his genius in the last third of the pitch".

Preparing for his second game at the World Cup, Neymar was disappointed with his performance against Switzerland as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury.


Soccer fans in Germany will also be holding their breath when the defending World Cup champions return to action on Saturday against Sweden as -240 favourites.

That also means Jesus' Manchester City teammate Danilo retains his place, having not even been expected to go to the World Cup until a late injury ruled Paris Saint-Germain's Dani Alves out of the competition.

Despite Neymar's fitness concerns, Costa Rica coach Oscar Ramrez claimed his players will not target him in the same way the Swiss did. "I wouldn't like to use rough tactics, I think there are ways to perform and the boys are clear how we need to play", said Ramirez.

Costa Rica may not provide quite as stubborn opposition as Switzerland, but Brazil will be wary that it took a brilliant free-kick from Aleksandar Kolarov to defeat them in their opening game.
