The Real Madrid left-back was substituted early on in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Serbia on Wednesday, after seeming to be in a lot of pain.

It was later said that Marcelo had suffered a back spasm, and one of Selecao’s physios, Dr Rodrigo Lasmar, explained it might have been caused by the player’s hotel mattress.

"It is still too early to make an accurate diagnosis," he said, according to AS.

"The injury may be related to the hotel mattress.

"Although our expectation is good, but we have to be calm and wait for the next few days."

Lasmar then ensured fans that Marcelo will not miss Brazil’s round of 16 tie with Mexico.  

"Marcelo is medicated and with medication the tendency is that the response is good and that he can play," he added. "The important thing is that there is no injury.

"They were muscle spasms. Once he feels good to train, he will return and immediately be ready to play.

"There is no recovery period."
