Neymar denies injury fears

Jun 16 2013, 1:38am CDT | by

Brasilia, June 16 (IANS) Brazil striker Neymar has denied reports he is carrying an injury and declared himself certain to start in Brazil's Confederations Cup Group A match against Mexico Wednesday.

Brasilia, June 16 — Brazil striker Neymar has denied reports he is carrying an injury and declared himself certain to start in Brazil's Confederations Cup Group A match against Mexico Wednesday.

The 21-year-old striker scored Brazil's opening goal in their 3-0 victory over Japan Saturday but was replaced in the 74th minute by Paris Saint-German winger Lucas, reports Xinhua.

"I'm ok, I just took a knock and felt a bit of pain in my back," the Barcelona star said.

During the week, Neymar refuted speculation he is suffering a knee problem but added that "no player is ever totally free of pain".

His substitution at the Mane Garrincha Stadium raised eyebrows because he is rarely taken off by Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari. However, he insisted he is certain to start against Mexico at Fortaleza's Castelao Stadium.

"Don't worry, you can be 100 percent certain," Neymar said of his chances of playing.

The forward, who was signed by Barcelona for 57 million euros June 3, admitted he was relieved to have scored his first goal in nine matches at both club and international level.

"I'm very happy with the performance, not just for me but the team. I have always said that as a team we are going to be successful and that individual quality will be shown when the time is right," Neymar said.

Alexandre Pato: Where Did Brazil Striker's Career Take a Wrong Turn?

Jul 25 2014 4:44am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Since Brazil's capitulation at the hands of Germany over two weeks ago now, theories have been rife as to what needs to be done to repair the damage to the nation's reputation. Who needs to be brought in, and how the best can be gained from what is generally considered a limited crop of international-class players to choose from. The first step has at least been taken, with Dunga being handed the manager's job for a second time. His first test will ...

This is not a nightmare, Brazilian fans: Dunga has really been officially presented as the new Brazil manager. With Luiz Felipe Scolari resigning (before he was royally sacked) in the wake of Brazil’s horror-show World Cup, the notion of Dunga resuming charge of the Seleção must have seemed like a bad joke a week ago, but it’s come to pass. The 1994 World Cup winning-captain and coach during the 2010 World Cup was unveiled to the media today, a ...
