He suffers a sprained ankle that will require about 10 days of recovery. The shadow of the 2018 Barasil World Cup came back over him
neymar not play any of the two games that remain for Brazil in the group stage. This has been confirmed by several Brazilian media outlets that are very close to the concentration of those of titewho this Friday had the bittersweet taste of the resounding victory against Serbia (2-0) and the injury to neymarwhose sprained ankle does not take him away from world but it will take about a week or 10 days to recover. In a very extreme case, and if his team were to risk qualifying in the last game against Cameroon, he could shorten the deadlines, but that scenario does not seem feasible.
All the alarms went off in the 79th minute, when after limping off the field, the 30-year-old PSG footballer put ice on his ankle, covered his face and began to cry. The shadow of Brazil 2014 returned to him and although tite tried to stop the alarms -“I’m sure he’s going to play again in this worldhe said, the injury is what it is.neymar suffered a sprained right ankle. The expectation is the observation. Any talk of evolution, its sequel, is premature. We don’t have any answer, it’s important to wait,” the doctor from the Brazilian Confederation told the media.
The injury was seen coming from the beginning of the game. In fact, Neymar received nine fouls from the Serbs, by far the most on the first day of the group stage. Next on that list was Bruno Fernandeswho was fouled four times against Ghana, just like lewandowski against Mexico or Gavi against Costa Rica, for example. But the intensity, if not violence, of the entries on Thursday night (especially one of Gudelj and another of Milenkovic), have finished damaging the part of the body, the ankle, which has always been Neymar’s Achilles heel.
