Full-back Danilo also returns from injury as Tite makes 10 changes to his squad after rotating his squad for Friday’s 1-0 loss to Cameroon, which came after they had already concluded qualification for the knockout phase.

Eder Militao is the only player to keep his place, but the Real Madrid defender is expected to start at right-back as captain Thiago Silva and Marquinhos return to the heart of the defence.

South Korea coach Paulo Bento makes two changes as he welcomes Napoli centre-back Kim Min-jae, who missed the last-gasp 2-1 win over Portugal that left them through.

Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan is also rewarded with a start, as he scored the game-winning goal in that game.

Kwon Kyung-won and Lee Kang-in are the breakout players.

The winners will advance to the quarterfinals on Friday against Croatia, which previously defeated Japan on penalties after a 1-1 draw after extra time.
