DOHA, Qatar (AP) — With Neymar out for at least another match at the World Cup, Brazil coach Tite must now start thinking about a replacement — and this time he has plenty of options. Tite brought nine forwards to the World Cup, and could also add a midfielder as Neymar’s replacement if wanted. It's hard to find someone else on his level,” Brazil midfielder Casemiro said Saturday.

England captain Ben Stokes has said that 18-year-old Rehan Ahmed, who has been called up to England's December test squad to face Pakistan, is a "very rare talent".

All-rounder Ahmed has featured in only three first-class matches for Leicestershire, taking nine wickets and making 195 runs across those appearances.
