Dr Lasmar said: "Fred has started his recovery work but he still has pain.
"It is too early to do any diagnosis, we have to wait for the first 24 hours."

He added: "He could wake up tomorrow without complaints, but we need to have an exam.

"We have to wait."

Brazil fly out to Vienna for their final warm-up game against Austria on Sunday, a week ahead of their World Cup opener against Switzerland.

Tite's squad, favourites for the tournament, also face Costa Rica (June 22) and Serbia (June 27) in the group stage.
