The Brazilian national team ended the match against Serbia in such a composition: Alisson - Fagner, T. Silva, Miranda, Filipe Luis - Fernandinho, Kazemiro, Renato Augusto - Willian, G. Jesus, Neimar.

Danilo missed the Serbia match with a hip injury but is now set to make his comeback for Brazil when they face Mexico at the Samara Arena on Monday.

The Kwese studio crew break down all the important statistics and point out what Brazil did better than their competition to finish atop Group E.

And now Dr Rodrigo Lasmar has revealed that the problems to Marcelo may have come as a result of a hotel mattress.

Mom shot carjacker who tried to steal SUV with kids inside: cops
Wednesday when Ricky Wright, 36, attempted to steal her vehicle while she was paying her gas bill, police said . After being shot, Wright crashed the vehicle into a light pole and was transported to a local hospital.

The coach said he did not expect to change his lineup from the one he used against Serbia other than replacing Marcelo.

Himself Marcelo wrote on Twitter that his injury was not serious and he will soon be back on the football field.

Tite told reporters at a pre-game press conference: "Yes, we have confirmed the team. He said he locked up when he was leaving the pitch". It is assumed that the 30-year-old defender felt uncomfortable because of the mattresses in the hotel.

Winger Douglas Costa, who plays for Juventus, continues to recover from a right thigh injury he sustained in the group stage and will not play against Mexico.
