Filipe Luis to play ahead of Marcelo for Brazil

Marcelo is helped off the field by the medical staff

As unusual as it seems, Brazil's Marcelo could miss time due to a "hotel mattress" related back injury.

Marcelo limped out of Brazil's final group match against Serbia just minutes in after suffering from a back spasm.

Marcelo himself has also come out and assuaged reports that the injury will keep him out of the Brazil team writing the following on his Instagram account: "Thank you for your messages!" With the defender back in training, Lasmar's feelings appear to be correct.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio, meanwhile, made only two changes to the side that suffered a 3-0 defeat to Sweden in their final match, giving 39-year-old Rafael Marquez his first start of this World Cup.

Bolton added that it would be to the North's advantage to cooperate to see sanctions lifted quickly and aid from South Korea and Japan start to flow.

Marcelo is looking ready to return in Brazil's starting line-up ahead of their round of 16 game with Mexico on Monday.

Costa and Marcelo trained separately from their teammates Friday, while Danilo was back with rest of the squad in the practice session in Sochi.

The Brazilian soccer federation had said Marcelo had improved from its back problem but did not provide a timetable on his recovery. Thank God it was not serious! I know it was his back, more than that the doctor can explain. Doctors had said Costa's problem was likely to take more time to heal.
