Brazil boss Tite has claimed that forward Neymar has returned to his best form ahead of the Selecao’s World Cup clash against Mexico in the round of last-16.

Neymar sustained a broken metatarsal in February but has retained his fitness ahead of the kick-off of the World Cup in Russia.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has started all of his side’s three Group E matches and managed to score once for his nation.

During the press conference ahead of the game, Tite has also revealed that Filipe Luis will start ahead of injured Marcelo.

“There’s dressing room conversations, some things I can’t say, others I will,” he said.

“He played a lot, too much, and we know the price he paid to resume this level of performance.”

“He played very well and he played similarly to what he’s been doing before which is difficult so when I said there’s a need to take on expectation…I’m not talking about tomorrow, I’m talking about now.”

“He played fantastically, he helped marked the wings, transition with the ball…tomorrow I don’t know but right now yes he’s resumed his top performance.”

Brazil, who won the World Cup five times, will take on Mexico tonight at Samara Arena in the round of last-16.
