Neymar fit for Brazil after World Cup injury fears

Gabriel Jesus to retain Brazil place ahead of Roberto Firmino against Costa Rica

Gabriel Jesus to retain Brazil place ahead of Roberto Firmino against Costa Rica

The Selecao need their talisman at his best after drawing 1-1 with Switzerland in their 2018 FIFA World Cup opener, and the Mirror's Alex Richards reported on his withdrawal, which comes after Neymar only recently recovered from a broken foot. Only a handful of players could replicate those numbers, and none of them are in Brazil's squad. And for 90 minutes against Costa Rica, it was more of the same. Neymar thought he had a penalty with 13 minutes remaining when the referee awarded a spot-kick, then changed his decision after a video assistant referee (VAR) review and adjudging he dived.

Asked about the reason behind the decision, a Federation Internationale de Football Association spokesperson said: "The colours are actually shared with the teams in April and are only reconfirmed at the match coordination meeting on the day before the match". Costa Rica have none and crashed out of the competition. Costa Rica's only World Cup victory against a team from South America was four years ago against Uruguay.

Fans from Santa Catarina, in southern Brazil, said that the new cut signaled a new start to the World Cup for the team.

Game Director Todd Howard explained the advantages of the latest in the " Fallout " franchise being an online RPG. Fallout Shelter was surprised released at E3 in 2015 on iOS, and was quickly followed up with an Android version.

The game in Volgograd is so highly anticipated in Iceland that its national post office has announced it will close more than three hours early as most of the country is expected to watch.

A GIF of the tumble instantly shot around Brazilian social media with WAGs asking if Tite himself hadn't been teaching Neymar how to dive. Serbia vs. Brazil is all of a sudden a monster matchup, while Switzerland can take advantage of an already eliminated Costa Rica to move on.
