Tite confirmed that Neymar has recovered from the injury and will play against South Korea


Good news for Brazil after the announcement by Tite, the Canarinha coach, who assured that Neymar Jr. will play against South Korea in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar 2022. Neymar was only able to play 60 minutes of the match against Serbia in the first match of the group stage after suffering an ankle ligament injury.

Although the Brazilian came out in tears and clearly worried about the injury, he was able to recover for the next phase and return to the attack for the round of 16 match. Something that relieves the coaching staff and fans who they already lost Gabriel Jesús and Alex Telles to knee injuries after the match against Cameroon.

Neymar Jr. was able to return to training this Saturday before the match this Monday at 2:00 pm ET at the 974 Stadium in Qatar. The Brazilians arrive after being group leaders, but in the last game they lost 0-1 against Cameroon, which ended a long streak of games without losing in the group stage of the World Cup.

Tite is expected to come out with an offensive formation like in the first meeting with Serbia with Neymar, Raphinha, Vinicius Jr and Richarlison in attack. Several players like Thiago Silva, Alisson, Alex Sandro, Casemiro, Raphinha were able to rest on the last day after having secured qualification.

For its part, South Korea achieved classification in extremis after scoring a goal at 90+1 and defeating Portugal 2-1 to reach the round of 16. So the Asian team has had more wear and tear, although they have the spirit to believe that they can give another surprise in Qatar 2022 and take out one of the favorites to win the World Cup.
