Brazil star, Neymar, has insisted the quarter-final between Colombia and Brazil is more than a personal battle between himself and James Rodriguez.
All eyes will be on the two number 10s and contenders in the Golden Boot race, which Rodriguez is leading with five goals and one ahead of Neymar.
However, the 22-year-old believes there is much more to Colombia than just Rodriguez.
“Colombia are another tough South American opponent after Chile and it won't get any easier,” Neymar told The Times of India.
“Also, it isn't a match between Neymar and James Rodriguez but a game between Brazil and Colombia.
“We will once again have to perform as a team. James is a dangerous player and he has shown what a talent he is with a brilliant left foot and great vision. We need to give him little to no space or otherwise he will spell danger for us.”
When asked if the game in Fortaleza would be tough, Neymar said: “Yes, without a doubt.
“Against Chile we really suffered. In the end it was pure emotion. My tears after the game were those of sheer happiness.
“But we also know that the game against Chile was not one of our best matches, but the desire to win and get through to the next round was huge.
“It was the most I have ever suffered in football. We need to repeat all of this against Colombia to make it into the semi-finals.”
Neymar also revealed that the recovery from a "heavy knock to the right knee and a smaller knock" to his left hamstring are on track and he will be fit enough to play against Colombia.
