Neymar limps out of Brazil training with pain in ankle

Neymar is Ronaldo's heir at Real Madrid claims Valdano

It seemed a matter of time before Brazil's pressure paid dividends and the opener arrived in stunning style on 20 minutes.

"I was pushed out of the way". It's for the referee to see it. We wanted to win the first game.

The Brazilians were frustrated by Switzerland's physical approach and also filed a complaint about Steven Zuber's equaliser after he appeared to push Miranda before nodding home.

He last wore the armband during a 1-0 defeat by Argentina in June, that friendly loss in Australia being the only defeat suffered by coach Tite's Brazil in the last 22 games. He also dismissed charges that Neymar had been treated harshly.

"Neymar is OK, of course".

The opening group game for Brazil at this summer's World Cup was against Switzerland and, with the attacking talent at manager Tite's disposal, it was seen as three points in the bag.

"I guess it was foul", he said.

Homeland Security prepares order to end family separations at border
Trump's executive order reversing the practice continued to argue that Congress' inaction allowed the situation to happen. In the Oval Office, Trump said he had also heard from his daughter and aide, Ivanka Trump, about the policy.

"Sometimes there's a lack of recognition and that's a pity because we played very well", grumbled Switzerland boss Vladimir Petkovic in the aftermath of that game. "They did and it worked".

Despite this, Brazil's hopes firmly rest on Neymar's shoulders and it will have come as a worrying sign after the forward was videoed limping out of the Rostov Arena after the match.

Tite's men ended as they had begun with a series of chances for a late victor as Neymar and Roberto Firmino headed straight at Sommer before Miranda dragged a shot inches wide. "There was a lot of pressure and anxiety on the players, and that translated into the finishes that were not precise".

Kolarov made no mistake when he was presented with a free-kick after David Guzman stopped Mitrovic's driving run towards the penalty area just before the hour mark. Goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who plays for Real Madrid, couldn't reach it.

The final moments of the game were marked by a squabble on the sidelines as Nemanja Matic got into a tussle with a Costa Rican coach.

"In Brazil only being the champion is good, second place or fourth, like happened at the last cup, the players are criticised, the team".

Serbia and Costa Rica traded chances in the first half.
