Rio de Janiero:Brazil coach Mano Menezes has ruled out resting striker Neymar during Wednesday`s international friendly against Argentina.

Neymar is set to form a three-pronged attack alongside Lucas and Luis Fabiano at the Serra Dourada Stadium in Goiania,as reported by a news agency.

"I think he is able to rest more when he is with us (national team) than with Santos," Menezes said Tuesday. "With the Brazil squad he trains, eats, rests and plays.

"He has become the most important player in Brazil and I don`t see how we can leave him out of the team."
