Neymar will make his first appearance for over three months on Sunday as Brazil boss Tite confirmed the Paris Saint-Germain striker will play in the second half of his country’s friendly against Croatia.
Neymar suffered a fractured foot while playing for PSG against Marseille in Ligue 1 on February 25.
The 26-year-old had surgery in Brazil amid fears he wouldn’t be fit for the World Cup.
“Neymar? He’ll start on the bench because he’s still recovering, and will come on at half-time because we’re preparing as a team,” Tite told reporters at a press conference on Saturday.
