Neymar all set to return against Croatia today

LONDON: It’s not yet clear whether Neymar is fit or not, but the Paris Saint-Germain star will make a second-half appearance in Brazil’s friendly against Croatia on Sunday.

Neymar will return to action since he was injured three months ago during a Ligue 1 match when he fractured a metatarsal and sprained his ankle against Olympique Marseille.

“He’s on the bench because he is still recovering,” said Tite told reporters in Liverpool, where the match will take place. “He will come on at halftime. Who he replaces, I don't know but that is the idea.”

Tite said Neymar must be "a protagonist" for his country, but added that the others players must also step up.

Brazil will start the game at Anfield with Willian up front alongside Gabriel Jesus. Fernandinho will replace the injured Renato Augusto in midfield
