Neymar reports fit for round of 16

Brazil’s superstar Neymar is set to make a comeback in the round of 16 match against South Korea after recovering from injury at the World Cup in Qatar. As Brazil’s team boss Tite explained on Sunday, the 30-year-old striker could appear on Monday (8 p.m., live on ORF1).

Neymar injured his ankle in the first group game at the World Cup in Qatar against Serbia (2-0) and has been out ever since. The attacker also spoke on social networks on Saturday: “I feel good, I knew I would do it now,” he wrote, adding photos from the
Training online.

The Brazilians have other injuries to worry about. For Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles, the World Cup has already ended prematurely. The Arsenal striker and Sevilla FC full-back both injured their right knees in the 1-0 draw against Cameroon in their last group game.
