Neymar cited wanting a new challenge for moving and Paris Saint-German were willing to trigger his release clause of £222million to make that happen.

The insane transfer deal allowed PSG to bring the Brazilian to Parc des Princes for a tenure of three years, but could very well see him leave just after one, with Real Madrid planning to make a stunning swoop for him in next year's summer transfer window. Most of the Swiss players who were called up then are still playing in the national team. A World Cup with a decent, entertaining Brazil team? We totally have the means to finish on top.

Won a group that contained current African champion Cameroon, former champion Zambia, and Algeria. And a happy Neymar is a wonderful, terrifying sight.

This will be Costa Rica's fifth World Cup appearance, impressive for a country with a population just under 5 million. A quarterfinals berth would set expectations for future generations.

'The respect towards the team now is different to what it was three or four years ago after the World Cup. "The feeling amongst the fans has changed, everyone has confidence again and that has no price". "He is the sort of player you would love on your team and of course I would prefer him to be here." added the Croatian. If Coutinho finds spaces between the lines consistently, while Casemiro keeps the door closed at the back, a sixth World Cup trophy will be firmly in the Selecao's grasp.

With all due respect, I have to disagree with you about (Marcelo) Bielsa's Argentina peaking then. The Costa Rican team is an experienced one, and is unlikely to start any player with fewer than 20 caps.

KEY PLAYER: Aron Gunnarsson (Cardiff City) - Gylfi Sigurdsson may be the main attacking threat, but bearded captain Gunnarsson inspires a gritty team. I can't say by how much but I'm sure they're going to improve. Very little. I don't think luck itself can help a team win it. His absence weighed heavily in the group-deciding loss at Portugal.

Players such as Neymar and Coutinho will guarantee this Brazil side stays faithful to the nation's attacking roots.

"The eventual champions are the ones that put in the hard work a long time beforehand, and are ready to face anyone in their group or in the knockout rounds".

"The others are circumstances of the competition".
