Brazil Coach Tite Opens Up
How Neymar fares in Brazil’s final training session before Monday’s round of 16 encounters against South Korea at the World Cup will determine whether he starts, sits, or gets a third straight game off. Following a right ankle injury sustained in Brazil’s opening triumph over Serbia, the team’s striker missed the next two group games. On Saturday, he resumed practicing with the team, but whether or not he will be available for the game against South Korea is still up in the air. Brazilian coach Tite said before Sunday’s practice that if the player “trains well” throughout the session, he will play.
Fitness To Decide Neymar’s Playing Fate
Tite has declared that he will utilize Neymar from the opening kick instead of as a substitute if the player is able to participate in the game. Tite makes it a point to put his best player in the starting lineup whenever it’s possible. That is to say, “the individual who must make that judgment and face that load is the coach.” Despite the fact that they were eliminated in their final encounter of the pool stages, Brazil advanced to the round of 16.

Neymar Scare For South Korea
The head coach of South Korea, Paulo Bento, admitted that he enjoys it whenever the best players are around. We won’t deny that Brazil is easier to beat when Neymar is on the field, but I’d rather see the best players in action. South Korea shocked Portugal in their final group stage match to move to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years. During the match against Serbia, Neymar suffered a ligament injury in his ankle, and it was uncertain whether he would be able to play against World Cap Qatar.
