Brazil's Marcelo a doubt for Mexico match Douglas Costa ruled out

He is expected to be fit for Brazil's last 16 clash with Mexico on Monday.

Coach "pentakamponeov" assured that the Mexicans will play those who finish the fight against the Serbs.

"At the moment things are going better, we started physiotherapy which helped a little, but still need to wait a day or two" said Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar.

In the large gamut of unusual sporting injuries, there looks to be a new addition, with Brazil left back Marcelo suffering a back spasm during Brazil's last match for a particularly odd reason.

Marcelo had to be replaced 10 minutes into the game in Moscow. He has already returned to training and, if necessary, will be able to go on a replacement.

Brazil's team doctor has said a hotel mattress may have caused the back spasms which forced Marcelo off the field during a 2-0 victory over Serbia. "Maybe it was the hotel's mattress, which was a bit more soft than usual. We are optimistic he can be used in the game". Thankfully it was nothing serious and I'll be back in no time!

Tite says he intends to copy positive aspects of the win over Serbia.

Questions were raised after Renato Augusto, Danilo, Douglas Costa and Marcelo all got hit by injuries before and during the World Cup. Manchester City right-back Danilo was ruled out with a thigh problem before Brazil's second group stage game against Costa Rica and has yet to return.
