RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- Brazil forward Neymar could still play in Brazil's opening 2022 World Cup qualifier against Bolivia on Friday despite a back problem that has left him unable to train, team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said on Thursday.
Queiroz said the move had nothing to do with planning for the next match against Chile in Santiago on Tuesday.
Argentina have not beaten Bolivia at the Hernando Siles stadium - located 3,600 meters above sea level - since 2005, when Jose Pekerman's side won 2-1 on the road to the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
"I had already won a medal in Rio, so I am not going to be under pressure in Tokyo."
"It was good to decompress the situation a little bit and send strength to all Argentines."
After a disappointing draw in the friendly against Turkey, Joachim Loew's team seems to have lost the nimbus of a team standing for commitment and efficiency.
In the constructors' standings, Mercedes remain well out in front on 391 points, ahead of Red Bull with 211, with Racing Point moving up to third on 120 points.
"However, in order to attract more to this sport, we arrange four players a team with a woman in each. The more people take part in, the better beach volleyball is popularized, and that's where the success of a sport lies in," said Liu.
"Maybe this is my last season as a player," she emphasized. "I need to give other players the chance, and hope to become a coach as soon as possible, which is good for me in the future."
Liu Jiacen pocketed a game-high 29 points and 10 rebounds. Cao Junwei led Shandong in points (26), rebounds (5), and assists (4).
