  • Gabriel Jesus to retain Brazil place ahead of Roberto Firmino against Costa Rica

Bündchen is a noted fan of the Brazilian national team and was involved when the nation hosted the World Cup in 2014, helping to present the trophy before the final between Germany and Argentina. Only a handful of players could replicate those numbers, and none of them are in Brazil's squad.

The Serbs were wasteful against Costa Rica last weekend with Aleksander Mitrovic being the main guilty party.

Tite became the second coach to pick up an unexpected injury at the World Cup when he pulled a muscle celebrating Brazil's late goal against Costa Rica.

Meanwhile Nigeria will be looking for a win as they lost their opener against Croatia and need the three points. Brazil had 23 shots, nine of which were on goal, but Keylor Navas was sensational in goal and looked to have done enough to secure a draw.

"It was either the symptom of troubling instability or it was a return of Neymar's narcissism that Neymar had managed to control so well for almost the whole match".

As for Nigeria, a draw could do it for them, while a win locks them into the knockout stage.

Brazil plays its next game on Wednesday against Serbia at 2 p.m. EST.

It was a free kick from Kolarov that put Serbia in solid position in the group, but Switzerland may be as tough a foe as Brazil. A win for Iceland would take Argentina's fate out of their hands. Their results coming into Russian Federation weren't great and they were lucky not to lose by more than a goal to nil against Serbia on Sunday.
