Brazil sweat on Neymar return ahead of South Korea World Cup clash

Brazil heads into Monday's World Cup last-16 tie against South Korea preoccupied by the health of the great Pele and with coach Tite wondering whether to recall the Selecao's current number-10 Neymar after an ankle injury. Tite used his press conference prior to Friday's final-group game against Cameroon to wish Pele a speedy recovery after the all-time great was admitted to a hospital in Sao Paulo during the week.

The three-time World Cup winner, now aged 82, has been undergoing a "re-evaluation" of the chemotherapy he had following surgery to remove a colon tumor in September last year. The Brazilians will look to consolidate their squad around Neymar and triumph over the impressive South Korea. The Asian giant surprised Portugal with a pulsating comeback in a 2-1 thriller to secure themselves a chance in the round of sixteen.

Most of the funs of the Samba Boys will be hoping for the best out of Neymar, especially his romantic and skillful display on the pitch. I will fancy a narrow win for the Brazilians.
