Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari unsure of Neymar fitness

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari reveals that Neymar could miss the team's World Cup quarter-final against Colombia on Friday with a thigh injury.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has revealed that Neymar is an injury doubt for the team's World Cup quarter-final against Colombia next week.

The 22-year-old picked up a thigh problem on Saturday during the host nation's dramatic victory over Chile in the last 16.

"We need to evaluate it but we should have three, four or five days to try and make sure he can play the next game," Scolari is quoted as saying by FIFA.com.

Neymar has scored four goals in four games for Brazil so far at the World Cup.
