“Yes”. Tite’s answer was what the whole of Brazil wanted to hear. In the first question of a press conference, a reporter asked Thiago Silva if Neymar would play against South Korea. The centre-back looked at his coach, who gave the aforementioned response. Neymar sustained ankle ligament damage in Brazil’s first game, a 2-0 win over Serbia, and hasn’t played since. The 30-year-old has hit 75 goals in 122 caps. “He will train this afternoon,” said Tite. “If he does this, he will play the game. But [the decision] depends on specific training. If he’s well, he’ll go out on to the pitch.”
