SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Bernard, Brazil midfielder:

(On the players' reaction after knowing Neymar was out of World Cup).

"Of course the group feel for Neymar. He's a loss not only as a player but as a human being as well, an incredible person on a day-by-day basis. He brings joy to our group, always smiling, giving us confidence. But we have to go through this, be relaxed right now and not panic. We know that we have players here that can replace him."

SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Willian, Brazil midfielder:

(On being without Neymar).

"It's hard. Neymar is a focal point for the Brazil team. He's a player who makes the difference, takes responsibility for himself, who decides matches. Being without him is tough."
