Croatia vs Brazil preview: Selecao with a few injury worries for this Anfield tie

June 2, 2018 By Ali M.
Here is a comprehensive compilation of TV schedules and listings for Brazil's international friendly against Croatia,

Brazil’s preparation for the upcoming World Cup will see them take on another nation that has qualified for the summer competition: Croatia. Kick-off is right around the corner and this fixture will go a long way in testing both sides.

One of the biggest concerns, one that has been around for several months, is the fitness of Neymar. Despite regaining their status as one of the best national sides in the world after a rough 2014 World Cup and spell under Dunga, the PSG ace could still be the difference between winning the title and missing out once more.

The world’s most expensive player returned to training with the national side and was hopeful of featuring in the Anfield friendly, but is now unlikely to play. Only time will tell if he regains full fitness in time, but the vibe is positive.

Tite has a few other concerns in the former of Renato Augusto and Douglas Costa, with both tipped to miss out on this clash due to injury. Regardless, Brazil is blessed with talented players and still has the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Philippe Coutinho, Willian, and Paulinho to call upon.

Croatia’s Zlatko Dalic has not yet cut down his squad to 23 names, meaning this tie could be crucial for fringe players. It remains to be seen whether the Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric will start or be given a rest, with the latter having recently starred in the Champions League final.
