Doctor's weird excuse for World Cup star's mystery injury

After the Selecao's 2-0 win over Costa Rica at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, the veteran centre-back sent tongues wagging when he told members of the media that he was "saddened" after he was "insulted" by Neymar when the 26-year-old reacted angrily towards him following a misplaced pass.

Though Mexico have never won against Brazil in a FIFA World Cup, Guardado said that El Tri was not intimidated by next Monday evening's (Tuesday morning AEST) match.

Brazil's team doctor has offered a freaky excuse for why defender Marcelo was substituted during the country's final group match against Serbia on Thursday. "He's getting better. We're expecting more, he's growing up in the competition and we hope to see a great Neymar".

A highly-anticipated World Cup matchup is being moved to FOX 5 Atlanta.

"We weren't full of confidence after the match against Germany".

Visibility distressed upon being replaced by Felipe Luis, the blow caused real concern for head coach Tite and the rest of the Brazil squad due to his attacking presence and experience he brings to the national team. "He said he locked up when he was leaving the pitch". "You have to challenge the athletes to grow, it's a short tournament and you have to have the right athletes for the right games".

A soft mattress may have been the reason Marcelo only managed 10 minutes of Brazil's final group game.

Mystery surrounded the nature of Marcelo's injury who left the field in tears.

"They were muscle spasms".
