Pele backs Neymar to win tournament for Brazil in Russian Federation

Pele backs Neymar to win tournament for Brazil in Russian Federation

According to Pele, the 2018 World Cup is another chance for Neymar, who missed the team's 7-1 loss to Germany in 2014, to make amends.

The former Barcelona forward has confirmed that he will be ready for this summer's tournament after undergoing surgery on a fractured metatarsal in early March.

'He already has a second chance because, unfortunately, what happened in Brazil - disaster, ' Pele told Omnisport.

Brazilian star striker Neymar has hinted he is on track to recover fully after his foot operation, meaning that the player would be fit in time to feature in the World Cup. I think this is a great, great opportunity for him to recover. I think he's a good player.

Nearly two months later, all parties concerned can take a sigh of relief with the news that the 26-year-old attacker is expected to be heading back to Paris soon, with a view to reaching peak fitness ahead of his country's campaign to lift the World Cup for a record sixth time in Russian Federation this summer.

The Selecao played all three of their World Cup 1966 group games at neighbouring Goodison Park, which was also the venue for their 1995 clash with Japan in the Umbro Cup.

Coach Tite picked Croatia as an adversary to test Brazil against a team from the Balkan region.

Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer of Liverpool Football Club, said: "We are delighted to welcome two world-class teams to Anfield". This will be a short time for them.

Croatia will take on Brazil in an global friendly match at Liverpool's Anfield stadium ahead of the World Cup.
