Neymar says out of action until at least May 17

The Brazil star had his 2014 tournament ended by a fractured vertebrae in the quarter-final

The 26-year-old Paris Saint-Germain forward was injured in the quarter-final win over Colombia on home soil four years ago and therefore missed the 7-1 destruction at the hands of Germany in the last four.

Brazil will also meet Austria at the Ernst-Happel Stadion, Viena, on June 10.

Nearly two months later, all parties concerned can take a sigh of relief with the news that the 26-year-old attacker is expected to be heading back to Paris soon, with a view to reaching peak fitness ahead of his country's campaign to lift the World Cup for a record sixth time in Russian Federation this summer.

Neymar told a TV Globo variety show that he feels no pain, but he can not put his injured foot on the ground without an orthopedic shoe. He arrived using crutches and asked to be seated as quickly as possible when he was on stage.

"I can't predict exactly [when he will be back in training], it depends on how it [his recovery] evolves", Neymar told reporters in Sao Paulo. "It is all according to plan", the Brazilian said. I feel that too. "I am preparing well".

"It is very bad to see my team score, win a title and I am not able to be there", he said.

Pele believes Brazil boast the best collection of individual talents in the world and now hopes Tite can fit them into a strong system in time for their first group game against Switzerland on 17 June.

The five-time world champions announced the date and opposition of the fixture last month during BGT's stop in Moscow.

The 26-year-old forward was injured February 25 in a French league game against Marseille.

Brazil legend Edson Arantes do Nascimento otherwise called Pele, has described football as a box of surprises because of the uncertainties inherent in the game. Mohammed Salah doesn't play for a famous team, but could have a good World Cup.

"I was charmed by the humility of a guy that has conquered everything, that is the best of all, asking me to be myself and show my best. He helped me a lot professionally and even more on the personal level", Neymar said.

The Brazilian also said it was hard not to be with his PSG teammates to celebrate their French league title on Sunday.
