Action Images

Seleção star Neymar received a huge reception from the crowd at Brazil's open training session ahead of their clash against Japan on Tuesday.

Neymar and his teammates walked out in front of a 2,500 strong crowd at Slask Warsaw's training ground and took photos with local children. 

Half of the 2,500 tickets provided for the session were given to local children who were delighted to see the stars in action.

The open training session was conducted by Brazil boss Mano Menezes who kept the training light before Tuesday's game, with Leandro Damiao and Jefferson returning from injury.

The teams are currently trying to drum up interest in the game, for which only 11,000 tickets have been sold, being played at Warsaw's Municipal Stadium which holds 42,000.

Mano Menezes is also expected to field the same team that began the 6-0 rout against Iraq last week.

The game against Japan will kickoff on Tuesday at 9.20pm UK time.
