Tite confirms Manchester United new boy Fred will miss Brazil's World Cup opener

Neymar recovered from a broken foot to make Brazil's 23-man World Cup squad and started their opening group-stage match, a 1-1 draw against Switzerland.

And Neymar's importance in this new-look team - he is one of only six survivors from four years ago - is clear from the comments of his teammates in Sochi.

Neymar has sparked concern in Brazil after he was seen limping out of training ahead the side's World Cup clash with Costa Rica.

Since Tite took over, Brazil has lost only once in 21 matches and was the first of 31 teams to qualify for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

To really would be a dream come true if Russian Federation managed to make it through to the final, and I suppose the same could also be said of Mexico, but I really do doubt that any of the other teams that I have so far not mentioned are going to trouble any of the teams I have!

While Brazil were held in their opener, Serbia edged Costa Rica 1-0 thanks to Alexander Kolarov's sensational free-kick, setting up a vital game for Tite's side.

In contrast to Neymar, Coutinho ended the season in sensational form for Barcelona after sealing his dream move from Liverpool.

"It will be very important".

"We haven't spoken about (it being a must-win game)", he told reporters after a training session. "We got a draw but this is only the beginning for us. We have another opportunity", Coutinho added. Now I am better focused for the [Costa Rica] game. We have to be focused.

"We have to play a happy game with responsibility because we're in Brazil jersey".

France are the only heavyweights to have won their first game so far, and even they needed the video assistant referee (VAR) to win a penalty and goal-line technology to confirm their winning goal in their 2-1 victory over Australia. "But I am happy with the way we've been performing".
