Silva, 41 is now with beIN SPORTS as a pundit during the World Cup.

Tite's side, who breezed through qualifying, losing just once in 18 games, begin their campaign against Switzerland on Sunday.

"There's no trauma. Even the good things don't go to my head and I don't let the bad things affect me".

Defending champions Germany lost to Mexico on Sunday while Argentina were held by Iceland and Spain drew with Portugal, with only France of the fancied teams winning despite an under-par display against Australia.

And former Barcelona star Rivaldo, who tasted World Cup glory in 2002 and scored 35 goals in 75 appearances for Brazil, believes anything less than victory is unacceptable.

The Paris St-Germain forward suffered a fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle in February, and although Tite believes the player is in "good enough [condition] to play very well" in Russian Federation, he admitted he was still not fully over the injury.

A young German side previous year won the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, thumping Mexico 4-1 along the way. After all, they are unbeaten in their last five World Cup matches.


Brazil are among the favourites to win the finals in Russian Federation, with an expectant nation hoping Tite's side can seal the country's sixth World Cup triumph.

"It's the most hard feat and history has demonstrated that, no one in 60 years has done it", Loew said on Saturday.

Here's how you can watch the match and more.

The day begins in Samara, about 650 miles (1,050 kilometers) east of Moscow, with the other teams in the deep Group E. Serbia is the lowest-ranked team in the group at No. 34, and Costa Rica is 23rd.

Costa Rica, meanwhile, now face an uphill task to repeat their surprise run to the quarter-finals four years ago in Brazil. "There are people who don't like my decisions or me personally".

The taxi driver, a 28-year-old man from the central Asian republic of Kyrgyzstan, told police during questioning that he had been working for 20 hours solid before the incident and had mixed up the brake pedal and the accelerator.

Violence against gays in Russian Federation regularly makes global headlines.
