Brazil have been touted by many as one of the clear favourites. Can Neymar lead them to glory this time?

Five-time world champions Brazil begin their World Cup campaign against 25th-ranked Serbia in their Group G encounter at the Lusail Stadium.

Serbia, on the other hand, have been undefeated in all but one of their last 16 international games across all competitions.
