Brazil's team doctor has since confirmed Neymar complained of ankle pains during today's session.

Neymar grimaced in pain during a "rondo" exercise, where players try to keep the ball away from two players in the middle of a square.

Brazil media officer Vinicius Rodrigues stressed the issue was not associated with Neymar's foot, which required surgery in February, as he highlighted the fact the 26-year-old was fouled 10 times in Rostov-on-Don - the highest total since the 1998 World Cup.

However, Coutinho insists Neymar remains the key figure in Brazil's pursuit of World Cup glory.
