Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says his side will cope without injured striker Neymar when they face Germany in today’s World Cup semi-final.
The 22-year-old has scored four of Brazil's eight goals at the tournament but will play no further part after he suffered a fractured vertebra in the 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia.
Scolari said his squad were fully focused on the task at hand.
The coach said "Neymar has done his share, Now it's up to them to do their share and in this match they will be playing not just for themselves but for everything they've ever dreamed of and also for Neymar and everything he's done for them."
