Neymar could be a doubt for Brazil's Group E clash against Costa Rica on Friday after he limped out of a training session with what appeared to be a foot complaint on Tuesday.

"Preparation continues for the second game of the World Cup".

Neymar recently returned from a fractured metatarsal suffered while playing for Paris Saint-Germain in a Champions League match in February.

However, questions remain whether he is seriously lacking match practice.

The reconciled version from the two chambers of the US Congress also needs to be signed off by Trump before it becomes law. Senators are looking to add provisions to the defense bill to reinstate sanctions placed on the Chinese firm.

With Neymar, the Selecao have enough creativity in the attacking third to drop Philippe Coutinho into a midfield role.

Whether Neymar will feature in those games remains to be seen. "Of course having him in our side is a big plus for us", added Coutinho. There was one tweet which highlighted Germany's failure in Russian Federation during the 2nd World War while there was vast outpouring of joy for the Mexican team. "He is always creating the play, creating space".

They also lost heavily to Belgium and England in warm-up friendlies, but captain Bryan Ruiz believes they can follow Switzerland's example to cause another massive upset. We need to take responsibility and our heads have to be in the right place.

If Neymar is able to play in Brazil's next game against Costa Rica, he'll be expected to lead his team to victory after its disappointing first result.
