XtraTime Web Desk: Good news for five-time World Cup champions Brazil as their star player Douglas Costa could be a part of the squad against Belgium in Kazan on Friday during the quarterfinals of the World Cup as he recovered from a hamstring injury.

The Juventus winger has managed just 45 minutes in the tournament so far, coming on at half-time in the 2-0 victory over Costa Rica.

However, Costa picked up a hamstring injury during his impressive cameo performance, ruling him out of his side’s final Group E fixture, against Serbia.

He was also not involved in the last-16 tie with Mexico but was back working with his team-mates on Tuesday as Tite’s squad prepare for Friday’s fixture in Kazan.

Costa – who completed a permanent move to Juventus in June after spending last season on loan in Turin from Bayern Munich – could be set to make a return to action when Brazil bid to reach the last four of the tournament.
