The Round of 16 has arrived in Qatar 2022. The teams are ready to fight against each other in order to get a spot in the next stage and Brazil are seen as the favorites to go all the way to the final.

During the game against Serbia, Neymar had to leave the field due to a high ankle sprain which ruled him out for the rest of the group stage. Now, Tite, Brazil’s coach, has adressed the player’s situation and revealed the PSG forward will be available to play against South Korea.
