Brazil will head into this match looking to banish the “ghost” of Diego Costa. The former Brazilian player recently took up Spanish citizenship, and should debut for Spain in their international fixture against Italy.

“We have better players than him,” said former Brazilian international Edmilson. “There are players in Brazil who can cover his absence.”

Brazil’s technical director of soccer Carlos Alberto Parreira echoed a similar view about the Atletico Madrid forward.

“(Diego Costa) is a good player, we would like to have him but we are not going to be crying and say how we miss him,” said Parreira. “There is life after him.”

With or without the Diego Costa, Brazil, who won their last five games, remain fancied winners against South Africa.
