The Paris Saint-Germain forward was withdrawn late into the Selecao's opening 2-0 win against Serbia last week, and it has been reported he could miss several games this tournament.

But speaking to the press ahead of their clash with Switzerland on Monday, Tite revealed his belief that Neymar and Danilo, who also suffered an ankle problem, will return to the fold at some stage of this World Cup.

"I believe both Neymar and Danilo will play again in the World Cup. I have medical reports that are on my side," he said.

"Both situations have improved and we believe both will be available to play. We have to live day by day. I blame myself with Neymar because I didn’t see that he was injured and he played on for 10 or 11 minutes."

Brazil will book their place in the knockout stages of the World Cup with a win against Switzerland.

Reigning champions France are the only side to have claimed two successive wins in Qatar thus far, becoming the first team to advance to the last 16.
