Neymar was fouled nine times in Brazil’s 2-0 victory over Serbia in the World Cup opener. The forward was in tears on the substitute bench during the game, which had left Brazilian football fans worried about his fitness for the remainder of the tournament.
However, a post by Fabrizio Romano explains Neymar will be available for the rest of the World Cup despite the injury scare. The Italian journalist quoted Tite after the game.

“Don’t worry, Neymar will play the World Cup. He will keep playing, you can be sure about that”.
Brazil earned a 2-0 win over Serbia courtesy of Richarlison’s double and Vinicius Junior’s double assist. The duo combined to lift the five-time Championship to a flying start in Qatar.
Brazil will take on Switzerland and Cameroon in the remaining two fixtures in Group G.
