Brazil coach Tite said the Paris St. Germain striker is slated to be back in action Monday (2 p.m. ET on FOX and the FOX Sports App) after sitting out the team’s last two group matches following ligament damage sustained in his right ankle during the opener against Serbia.
“Yes,” Tite said, when asked about whether he planned to name Neymar in the starting XI. “Neymar will train today in the afternoon, and if he trains well he will play. I don’t pass information that is not true.”
During Brazil’s 2-0 victory over Serbia, Neymar was on the receiving end of a crunching tackle from Nikola Milenkovic and was visibly distressed when being replaced with 10 minutes remaining in the game.
