#WorldCup: Brazil vs Chile Match Preview

By Sports Reporter on June 28, 2014

Brazil defender David Luiz is nursing a slight back problem suffered in training but he is expected to be fit.

Fernandinho is pushing for a starting role in midfield, although Luiz Felipe Scolari said earlier in the week that he has “blind faith” in Paulinho.

Chile defender Gary Medel has an ankle injury but, if fit, will keep his place in a full-strength side.

Key midfielder Arturo Vidal will return after being rested for the group stage defeat against the Dutch.

Vidal, Charles Aranguiz, Francisco Silva and Eugenio Mena are all one booking from a ban, along with Brazil quartet Thiago Silva, Ramirez, Neymar and Luiz Gustavo BBc reports.
