Neymar's chances of playing in the Club World Cup appeared to improve on Wednesday, as he trained for the first time since Barcelona arrived in Japan.
However, coach Luis Enrique refused to reveal whether Neymar, or fellow strikers Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, would play in the semifinal against Guangzhou Evergrande on Thursday.
Neymar did some running in front of the media at the start of a training session at the match venue, Nissan Stadium.
He missed training on Monday and Tuesday after hurting his groin in Germany last week before a Champions League match with Bayer Leverkusen.
