Brazil Head Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari confirms Neymar “needs” to play against Serbia
Brazil Head Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has confirmed Neymar will play in Friday's friendly against Serbia.
The Seleção face the European side in their final warm up game at the Estádio do Morumbi in São Paulo.
Neymar performed impressively in Brazil’s 4-0 win over Panama on Tuesday and Felipão is eager that he continues playing to ensure he is fully for next Thursday’s FIFA World Cup opener against Croatia.
“Neymar hasn’t played much since he was injured and wanted to play 90 minutes even after he was booked because he needed to get in shape to play,” he said, as reported by AS and Football Espana.
“He needs more playing time so he will play on Friday against Serbia.”
