Luiz Felipe Scolari has suggested that he will start his strongest team against Serbia on Friday ahead of their World Cup opener against Croatia next week.

Brazil head coach revealed that ‘no player will be spared’ in Friday’s game and it seems whoever starts that friendly fixture will be in line to start on June 12.

The 65-year-old was quoted by Goal.com, he said: "For the next game, no player will be spared.

“Those who are already in the team will be able to play, I will have all players available and the idea is to put out all of the players who can start against Croatia."

Neymar scored twice in Brazil’s 4-0 friendly win over Panama yesterday and then admitted after the game he wasn’t 100 per cent fit.

Scolari, however, rejected the notion that he shouldn’t have played the Barcelona forward in the friendly match.

"No, I would not have kept him out - he was left on for 90 minutes because he needs rhythm,” Scolari added.

“He won't be spared unless something happens. Every day he has a different play, he improvises very well.”
