Brazil forward Neymar has insisted that he will be fit enough to face Colombia in the quarter-finals of the World Cup on Friday, Sky Sports has reported.

There have been doubts over the fitness of the hosts’ talisman since he picked up an injury in the second round game against Chile on Saturday. He sustained the problem in the first half of the match, but was able to complete the full 90 minutes and extra time, as well as score a penalty in the shootout which decided it.


The 22-year-old has bruising to his knees and thigh, but after coming through a training session on Wednesday, he confirmed that he would be able to face Brazil’s South American rivals in Fortaleza. He said: "I am able to play against Colombia. I have no pain. I feel very well trained and rest assured, I'm fine."


Neymar has inspired Brazil so far at this World Cup, grabbing four goals in the group stages, but he believes that it has been a team effort so far in this tournament. He added: "I do not feel burdened with the obligation to be the highlight.


"I have colleagues who help me. Some win the ball, others give passes, others score goals. We are a team. It's not about one player. Here the important thing is that Brazil is champion."
