Anfield to host Brazil v Croatia in World Cup warm-up

Pele has backed Neymar to take his'second chance at this summer's tournament in Russia

Pele believes Neymar, who missed Brazil's 7-1 traumatic defeat to Germany four years ago on home soil due to injury, will see this year's World Cup in Russian Federation as a second opportunity for him to lift the trophy for the Seleção.

And, on Monday, Anfield was confirmed as the venue for the first of Brazil's two World Cup warm-up matches that month. He said last week he is still recovering following surgery but expects to be fit in time for the World Cup from June 14 to July 15.

Liverpool FC today confirmed that Anfield will host Brazil v Croatia in an worldwide friendly on June 3, 2018, kick-off 3pm.

"I think we're going to have a good team in the next World Cup".

He added: 'Everybody knows Brazil have the best individual players in Europe.

Nearly two months later, all parties concerned can take a sigh of relief with the news that the 26-year-old attacker is expected to be heading back to Paris soon, with a view to reaching peak fitness ahead of his country's campaign to lift the World Cup for a record sixth time in Russian Federation this summer.


"I am confident because Tite, the new coach, now (has) had a little time to set up the team".

"But individual players, no doubt Brazil has a team to get to the final of the World Cup".

Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer of Liverpool Football Club, said: "We are delighted to welcome two world-class teams to Anfield".

Pele said he expected few surprises at the tournament, identifying Lionel Messi's Argentina, Germany, England and France as potential challengers - although he didn't mention 2010 world champions Spain or current European laureates Portugal, led by their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo. This World Cup, the teams are very even.

"I played four World Cups. I started to cry, because it was a big surprise to me".
