Teresopolis: Brazil's injured striker Neymar will attend Saturday's third place play-off when the battered World Cup hosts take on the Netherlands.
Brazil were consigned to the ignominy of fighting out a game Dutch coach Louis van Gaal has attacked as "unfair" after their 7-1 semi-final mauling by Germany. (Is Neymar headed to Kerala for Ayurveda treatment?)
Neymar's absence dominated the build-up to Tuesday's humiliation. The Barcelona striker missed out after fracturing a vertebrae in the quarter-final win over Colombia.
