Brazil coach: Neymar is not at 100 percent

Neymar is Ronaldo's heir at Real Madrid claims Valdano

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.

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".
