"We need to evaluate it but we should have three, four or five days to try and make sure he can play the next game," said Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari of Neymar, who took a heavy knock to the thigh after a crunching challenge from Charles Aranguiz with the match just four minutes old.

"I don't understand how you can do that and not be booked," added Scolari of a challenge that left Neymar requiring treatment. (Also read: Brazil three steps from heaven, says Scolari)
