Thiago Silva "Saddened" Having Been Insulted By Neymar During Costa Rica Game

Neymar has now "totally recovered" from the foot injury that required surgery and saw him miss the end of the club season, Brazil's team doctor said on Saturday.

After drawing their first game, Brazil needed a victory to safeguard their passage through to the last-16 and Philippe Coutinho grabbed a crucial opener in the 91st minute to put his side ahead.

The old trim, which he debuted in Brazil's opening match versus Switzerland in Rostov, a surprising 1-1 draw for the Samba Boys, was heavily criticized by Twitter users.

The day begins in St. Petersburg in a match between Brazil and Costa Rica. He did, briefly, but video review showed the Paris Saint-Germain dived.

Deandre Ayton is certain he’ll be the No. 1 pick
Confidence is always important, and 2018 NBA Draft prospect Deandre Ayton certainly has plenty as he eyes the number one pick. Big key I learned was versatility. "Nobody is really double-teaming or triple-teaming".

Neymar returned and scored in World Cup warm-up friendly wins against Croatia and Austria but Tite admitted it could take up to five games for his star forward to be back to his best.

"When he (Neymar) draws the foul, he is in front of goal", Tite said. He also had a scare in training on Tuesday, limping off with an apparent right ankle injury.

Neymar's Instagram post reads: "Not everyone knows what I went through to get here". He was unintentionally pushed to the ground by substitute goalkeeper Ederson Moraes as the coach ran onto the field from the dugout after the goal in the first minute of injury time.

"Today, I was saddened by his behaviour", said Silva.

I am serene about this and I was sad about his behaviour towards me.
