Brazil will face South Korea in the last 16 of the World Cup in Qatar after finishing top of Group G.

The tournament favourites lost to Cameroon in their final group match but victories over Switzerland and Serbia proved enough to carry them through.

Brazil failed to covert the handful of decent chances they did create against Cameroon after manager Tite fielded a much-changed side.

Premier League star Antony, Gabriel Jesus and Bruno Guimarães has the chance to stake their claim for a starting position in the knockout rounds but it would be a surprise to see any get a chance against South Korea, even in the continued absence of Neymar.

Brazil World Cup 2022 squad

Goalkeepers: Alisson, Ederson, Weverton

Defenders: Alex Sandro, Alex Telles, Dani Alves, Danilo, Bremer, Éder Militao, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva

Midfielders: Bruno Guimaraes, Casemiro, Everton Ribeiro, Fabinho, Fred, Lucas Paquetá

Forwards: Antony, Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, Neymar Jr., Pedro, Raphinha, Richarlison, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr.

Head coach Tite has outlined an attacking approach for his side for the tournament, too.

"There will be opportunities for all [Brazil's forwards]," Tite said in an interview with The Associated Press. "Whoever is in will be deciding the match, all have to be prepared. Every match might require a different characteristic."

What is the latest on Neymar's injury?

Paris St-Germain pair Neymar and Marquinhos will both be key for Brazil, not forgetting Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr.

It was Richarlison who dazzled in their opening game against Serbia, though, scoring a fantastic overhead kick, winning the official man of the match award as well as rating highest in our readers' player ratings.

Brazil shrugged off the loss of Neymar to injury by beating Switzerland to book their place in the last-16 in Qatar. Brazil's star playmaker was ruled out of at least the World Cup group stage after tests on the sprained ankle he suffered against Serbia.

There is still no categorical answer on whether Neymar can inject his much-needed brand of mojo back in time for their last-16 match against South Korea.

But Dr Rodrigo Lasmar did his best to sound an optimistic note after the defeat to Cameroon: "We still have 72 hours before the next game, we will count on the time in our favor, we still have the chance, and we will wait to understand how this transition will happen," he said.

Neymar and Alex Sandro were due to be be welcomed back at training on Saturday to "practise with the ball," he added.

Alex Telles and Gabriel Jesus also picked up knocks in the Cameroon game, which may go some way to explaining particularly poor performances from the pair.
