Brazil will be without Douglas Costa and Danilo for their final World Cup group game against Serbia on Wednesday، as the Daily Mail said.
The Brazil squad spent Saturday reflecting on their late victory over Costa Rica in Switzerland، where Philippe Coutinho and Neymar struck twice in stoppage time to secure their first win of the tournament.
However، the club's doctor Rodrigo Lasmar has stated that both Costa، who appeared as a substitute in the victory on Friday، and Danilo will be absent from their showdown for a place in the knock-out stages with the Serbs.
Lasmar stated that Costa has a right thigh injury and Danilo is still nursing a right hip problem that saw him miss their recent win.
Neither will travel with the rest of the squad for the match in Moscow and will instead remain at the team's base in Sochi for treatment.
Costa's injury is believed to be a bit more serious، although he did not mention a timetable for his recovery.
Neymar wasn't pictured in training on Saturday، but it is unknown whether he did indeed attend the session or not. Meanwhile، Gabriel Jesus is one who looked surprisingly relaxed during the session as he continues to hunt for his first World Cup goal.
His slow return thus far has seen his place in the starting XI come under threat، with many calling for Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino to be given a chance in Brazil's final group game on Wednesday.
The opinion that matters though، is Tite's، who will be undoubtedly be giving it some thought.
Following Friday's win، however، questions were directed towards Neymar and his fitness following his recent injury troubles.
