XtraTime Web Desk: Neymar is not thinking about his previous injury which may ruled him out from this year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia and now he is totally ready for the biggest carnival of World football which is set to begin from tomorrow, Brazil goalkeeper Alisson said.

The star Brazilian forward joined Paris Saint-Germain  with a record breaking fee of £198million but his first season for League One champions was short as he suffered a massive foot injury.

He was out of play for more than 3 months and made a successful return on the ground for Brazil in a recent friendly win against Croatia at Anfield.

The striker is set to spearhead the attack for Tite’s side, who begin their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday, and Alisson claims Neymar has now rediscovered his confidence.

‘Neymar is doing very well, fortunately. I believe they dealt really well with his recovery process. He had a full clinical recovery,’ he said on Tuesday.

‘Of course in the beginning when he started working with the ball and working with the team we were extra careful.

‘He had to deal with the fear, which is normal after such a severe injury. And we also tried to take good care of him in the training sessions.

‘Gradually he became more confident. He started in the second half in the first game (against Croatia), he helped us, he lost the fear to play. And in the last game he played really well and I think that made him more confident.

‘We need Neymar on the field.’

After facing Switzerland, Brazil continue their Group E campaign against Costa Rica before facing Serbia in Moscow.
