Costa Rica, meanwhile, were beaten 1-0 by Serbia inn their first match so their tournament hopes could already be over if they were to lose a second game in a row.
The biggest news for Brazil and their fans is that star man Neymar has been declared fit for the game and will be leading the line for his country as they look to move on from that draw against Switzerland. It feels like a potential must-win for Brazil, and it expects to pick up three points here against a Costa Rica team that didn't create much in attack in the opener. However, due to his absences, Tite has announced that Fagner will replace the Corinthians right back.
"We know our country very well and people in our country don't like losing", he added. "Sometimes we are a little self-destructive I fear". "Supposedly it comes from inside the team but I wouldn't say so", he said.
"It is true that some players are closer to other players but there are not different groups, there are no problems at all within the team", he said. "I haven't had to intervene at all, there were no clashes".
The FIFA World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Costa Rica match will be played at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The encounter, however, is crucial for both teams as they are yet to clinch a win in the tournament.
Costa Rica appear to be in good health entering the game, but for Brazil, all eyes will be on Neymar.
"We have prepared very well physically and tactically, so we will have to use that in tomorrow's game, as well as our psychological strength".
