Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari hopes forward Neymar will be fit to face Colombia on Friday in the quarter-finals of the 2014 Fifa World Cup.
Neymar, 22, took a knock to his thigh early on in the second-round win over Chile that was decided by penalties.
“We will do our best to put him on the pitch,” said Scolari.
Neymar scored Brazil’s fifth spot-kick in the penalty shootout before Chile defender Gonzalo Jara missed to send Scolari’s side into the quarter-finals.
“Neymar needs to be valued for what he did because it was a big effort,” added the Brazil boss, who criticised English referee Howard Webb for not protecting his star player.
“He played 75 minutes of the match after a strong hit on the thigh and we couldn’t understand how somebody hits with that strength and gets no card,” added Scolari.
