All eyes will be on Neymar as Brazil kick-off their Fifa World Cup 2018 proceedings with a match against a team ranked just four places below them. Switzerland might not be in too many people’s favourites list, but ranked six in the Fifa rankings they have a team capable of going a long way.

Brazil, of course, will be aware of Switzerland’s strengths, considering how well Tite has marshalled his troops since taking over the Selecao.

However, no matter how well he might have organised his side, all that would have meant little if Neymar was not fit for this Fifa World Cup in Russia.

Fortunately, the talisman has seemingly recovered from the broken foot suffered while playing for his club PSG earlier this year, with Neymar even scoring a wonderful goal in a friendly just before the start of the World Cup.

All that bodes well, and as long as Neymar is in the starting lineup, Brazil will be on the top of the favourites list.

Tite also has to decide how much of an attacking lineup he goes with against the supremely well-drilled Switzerland side. The Brazil coach has the choice of playing Paulinho, Casemiro and Fernandinho in what is a more conservative midfield lineup or he could push Philippe Coutinho back and add Willian to the front three, alongside Neymar and Gabriel Jesus.

Whatever he goes with, though, you feel most of it will depend on how well Neymar plays – if he is in the mood, Switzerland will struggle.

Team news:

Brazil:

Neymar was the only real injury concern for Brazil, and with the main man expected to feature, Tite should be able to name his strongest squad.

There used to be a time when Brazil would struggle for just one decent goalkeeper, but for this Fifa World Cup, they have two world-class ones to choose from.

Ederson might have been a vital cog in Manchester City’s wheel during their march to the Premier League title, but the impressive goalkeeper is going to have to watch from the sidelines, with Allison set to take his place in goal.

As impressive as Ederson has been, Allison has been just as good, if not better, for Roma and Brazil, which has led to the goalkeeper being linked with the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Switzerland:

Going by the Fifa rankings this should be an evenly-contested match, but expect Brazil to dominate, with the Swiss looking to catch their opponents on the counter. In order for that to work, the manager Vladimir Petkovic will need to choose his playing XI accordingly, so it will be interesting to see how he goes.

Predicted starting XI:

Brazil: Alisson; Danilo, Thiago Silva, Miranda, Marcelo; Casemiro, Paulinho, Philippe Coutinho; Willian, Gabriel Jesus, Neymar.

Switzerland: Yann Sommer; Stephan Lichtsteiner, Fabian Schar, Manuel Akanji, Ricardo Rodriguez; Valon Behrami, Granit Xhaka; Xherdan Shaqiri, Blerim Dzemaili, Steven Zuber; Haris Seferovic.

The Germans and Mexicans meet in one of the most highly-anticipated group stage games

Group F play gets underway at the 2018 World Cup when Germany and Mexico face off in Moscow on Sunday. It’s a huge clash and one of the more highly-anticipated games of the group stage, as the reigning champs open up against the upset-minded North Americans.

Looked at as the best teams of the group, if either loses they’ll be in a tough spot and could potentially be headed for an early exit. Germany is the favorite in this one, but Mexico has the players to compete.

Germany enters the game healthy but questions remain around goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. He missed most of the season with Bayern Munich due to injury and hasn’t played a whole lot. How sharp will he be?

Mexico lost Diego Reyes for the tournament after he failed to recover from his hamstring injury in March, and now Juan Carlos Osorio will be tasked with finding the central defensive duo that can give Germany problems.

Here’s how you can watch the match and more. And be sure to return a half-hour before kickoff for our live blog of the game:

Germany begins their campaign to defend their World Cup title with a pretty tough starting match against Mexico in Moscow.

After dominating the group stages since 1994, the Germans have a lot to prove after suffering a bad year of results.

Mexico might see this as an opportunity to strike while the iron is hot but you can expect Germany, with Timo Werner, Mesut Ozil and Toni Kroos listed on the squad, to make a good run.

The first match of Group E is set to be an exciting one as Costa Rica take on Serbia.

Los Ticos will have a lot to make up for after they were beaten in both of their World Cup warm-up matches, despite having quite a wonderful run four years ago in Brazil.

Serbia’s squad is looking strong at the moment, especially after Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a hat-trick in their final warm-up match. Considering Mladen Krstajić’s men haven’t reached the knock-out phase in 20 years, Costa Rica might have a slight advantage. Costa Rica and Serbia meet on Sunday in the FIFA World Cup looking to take advantage of the opportunity in Group E before having to face Brazil and Switzerland. Both teams are talented and potential underdogs that could make a run, with Costa Rica knowing all about it after its fine journey to the quarterfinals a year ago.

The opener is always important, but knowing they are likely facing defeat against mighty Brazil in the group stage means this game is even more important. A draw doesn’t do a whole lot for either, while three points would be golden.

Costa Rica enters the game healthy but did have an injury scare to star goalkeeper Keylor Navas in their friendly against Belgium this week. He took a rocket shot from Romelu Lukaku right to the face and was down for a minute, but he’ll be ready to go.

Serbia also enters the match in a good moment and is healthy entering this contest. The European team has a little momentum after crushing Bolivia 5-1 in their last friendly.

Serbia is picking up some momentum as a potential underdog to make some noise, and young star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is looked at as a potential superstar. Costa Rica has struggled at the back lately, but Keylor Navas keeps them in it as they split the point. Serbia 1, Costa Rica 1.
