Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar expects Neymar to regain match fitness ahead of Brazil’s pre-World Cup friendly with Croatia in June.

The Paris Saint-Germain has been out of action since fracturing his foot in a Coupe de France match in February.

“We’ve been making new exams on Neymar and his evolution is really fine,” Lasmar told a news conference.

“Next week, he’ll be able to start training with the group. It’s progressive work and next week our idea is that he starts to work with the ball and the goal is that he can be fully fit to work with [coach] Tite in his final phase, so that he can take part in the first friendly.

“I’m giving these details to you a little bit before Tite, but only to tell you that he’ll be working to get back all conditions and of playing with the group.”
