Seoul: Barcelona striker, Neymar recovered from a hip injury and was declared  fit to play Brazil's friendly against South Korea on Saturday in Seoul.






Neymar left the field in pain when he was hurt in training after a challenge by Lazio midfielder Hernanes. Because of this he was listed as doubtful for the friendly but he practised on Friday.

Brazil doctors pronounced Neymar fit to play on Friday as the injury was not serious.

Neymar was replaced by Zenit forward Hulk after leaving the practice on Thursday, and coach Luiz Felipe Scolari hinted both players will likely start Saturday's match at the World Cup Stadium.

The duo played together during the Confederations Cup this year, when Brazil won the title.

Brazil will also play Zambia in Beijing on Tuesday.
