Final Group E games (2018 FIFA World Cup)

Tite confident Neymar will come good

Tite said he did not have any information about the fitness of left back Marcelo who had to go off early in the game and replaced by Filipe Luis.

"Marcelo has a medical history with this kind of injury", Lasmar said in the mixed zone. "Maybe it was the hotel's mattress, which was a bit more soft than usual".

Tite insists Brazil can cope with being installed as World Cup favourites, following Germany's shock exit, with the Selecao boss backing his side to grow in the knock-out stages at Russian Federation 2018.

An opening game loss to Mexico (0-1) was followed by a dramatic late win against Sweden (2-1) but they were unable to continue the momentum as South Korea humbled Joachim Low's side 2-0 sealing their fate.

Khazri ends Tunisia's long wait for finals win
Tunisia then took the lead through Wahbi Khazri as he tapped in from close range leaving Panama goalkeeper Jaime Penedo stranded.

"I can only say that Marcelo had a problem with his back, that it seized up", he said.

Tite was dealt a massive blow minutes into Brazil's last game of their group stage round. "He said he locked up when he was leaving the pitch".

The five-time World Cup winners head into the next round unbeaten following victories over Costa Rica and Serbia, while drawing with Switzerland who also advance to the last 16.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson spoke of his huge pride after his side topped the group with second-half goals against Mexico from Ludwig Augustinsson, Andreas Granqvist and an own goal from Edson Alvarez to move into a last-16 meeting with Switzerland.
