Neymar to be fit at Copa America, says Tite
AP, Rio De Janeiro :
Brazil captain Neymar has enough time to be in peak condition for the Copa America after a foot injury, national team coach Tite said on Monday.
Neymar returned to the pitch for Paris Saint-Germain in their 3-1 Ligue 1 victory over Monaco on Sunday, his first appearance since suffering a metatarsal fracture in January.
"Neymar has come back and we are going to hope for his rapid return (to form)," Tite said in a video published on the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) website.
Brazil have been drawn alongside Bolivia, Peru and Venezuela in Group A of the Copa America, to be played in five Brazilian cities from June 14 to July 7.
