Tite: Brazil needs to be very careful in the knockout stage

Brazil manager Tite has asked his players to be very careful in the knockout stage of the World Cup.

Brazil

finished at top of Group G with six points despite a 1-0 defeat against Cameroon on Friday.

Brazil will face

South Korea

in the last 16 and the winner of this match will play Japan or Croatia in the quarter-finals.

Neymar

who got injured in the first match against Serbia has not returned to training yet, but Brazil is still hopeful he will be ready for the knockout stage.

Team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar added:

"With 72 hours before the next match, we have time on our side. We still have possibilities."

After the match, Tite insisted that there is no easy draw at this tournament and they should not become complacent.

He said:

"Brazil lost to Cameroon. Portugal lost to South Korea. France lost to Tunisia. Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia. I think the results speak for themselves.

"I think these are very strong, very tough matches. I don't think we can think any prior situation makes it easy. We need to be very careful.

"We were very careful with the match against Cameroon. We were. We had all of those cares, we took them. They had their merits, played vertically very well. They have merit for the victory like Tunisia and the others.

"We can't say it's easier and we have an advantage. We can't say that."

Tite made nine changes to his team for the game against Cameroon. Both Alex Telles and Gabriel Jesus got injured during this game.

Tite said:

"Who lost? All of us. Our preparation is joint preparation, our wins are joint wins, our losses are also joint losses."

"The World Cup doesn't give you a second chance, but this time it did.

"We have to concentrate for 24 hours, suffer for 24 hours, and tomorrow we start getting ready."
