Brazil return! Neymar to feature against Croatia, confirms Tite”

The world's most expensive player has been fighting back to fitness since he suffered a fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle against Marseille in Ligue 1 on February 25.

Brazil's striker Roberto Firmino (R) celebrates with Brazil's striker Neymar after scoring their second goal during the global friendly football match between Brazil and Croatia at Anfield in Liverpool on 3 June 2018.

Ahead of Brazil's global friendly set to be played against Croatia at Anfield on Sunday, Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has urged fans not to act in a hostile manner towards former Red Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian injured the same foot playing for Paris Saint-Germain and underwent surgery in Brazil in early March.

The 45-year-old, who recently led Los Blancos to a third successive Champions League title, has opted for a change of scenary. Germany team manager Bierhoff was consequently relieved Low put pen to paper on a new contract until 2022 just two weeks ago.

Before Neymar's brilliant opener, Croatia might have struck first when Ante Rebic's header forced a fine save from Alisson.

Brazil head to Russian Federation as one of the favourites but this was a largely flat display, despite Tite choosing to start Gabriel Jesus, Willian and Philippe Coutinho, making his first appearance at the stadium since leaving Liverpool for Barcelona in January.

It took him just 21 minutes to make a stunning impression with a breathtaking individual goal to break the deadlock, before Liverpool favourite Roberto Firmino completed a 2-0 win in injury time.

Brazil were far from at their best against a Croatia side that edged matters in the first half, but the return of Neymar will give them a boost with the World Cup kicking off on June 14.

"Neymar is only human, but he came back above my expectations too", Tite said.

As the half-hour approached, former Anfield favourite Philippe Coutinho fired over and then cut in from the left before sending his attempted shot wildly wide.

"Neymar is going to have ups and downs like he had in training until the third, fourth game (on his return)".
