Brazil are racing to overcome injuries to key players as they prepare for their last-16 match against South Korea on Monday, after a heavily changed side lost 1-0 to Cameroon on Friday night.

Neymar is still recovering from an ankle injury suffered in their opening win against Serbia, and they have only one natural full-back available after left-back Alex Telles suffered a knee injury in the Cameroon defeat.

Full backs Danilo and Alex Sandro are out after injuries suffered earlier in the competition and their availability is still unclear.

Telles and forward Gabriel Jesus, who also suffered a knee injury against Cameroon, were ruled out for the rest of the tournament by the Brazilian FA on Saturday.

"The physical demand is ever increasing, the time is short, it's a cumulative effect of games and sometimes you don't have the ideal recovery time on your hands," coach Tite told a news conference on Friday.

"I don't really know what to say other than that, mentally, the Cup is very demanding. It drains you. The intensity of the matches, the preparation - they are components of analysis that we have to delve into deeper, but they are all considerable."

Brazil World Cup 2022 squad

Goalkeepers: Alisson, Ederson, Weverton

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

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?

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 welcomed back at training on Saturday to "practise with the ball," he added.
