Brazil: Neymar injured, the Seleçao doctor speaks

Out of injury during Brazil’s victory against Serbia on the first day of the 2022 World Cup, Neymar is suffering from a sprained right ankle. Very bad news for the rest of the competition…

It looks like Neymar is cursed… Already seriously injured with Brazil during the 2014 World Cup, the PSG striker is going through the same disappointment in Qatar. Since this Thursday evening, after Brazil’s successful entry into the running against Serbia thanks to a double from Richarlison (2-0), Neymar can already fear the worst for the rest of the competition. Released on injury after his ankle turned in a shock with Milenkovic in the last quarter of an hour of play, Neymar suffers from a sprained right ankle, according to the words of the Seleçao doctor. “ You have to wait 24-48 hours. It’s too early to make a diagnosis. We will observe him, like Danilo, also the victim of a sprain. Neymar stayed ten minutes on the lawn with this sprain before going out… “, noted Rodrigo Lasmar, the doctor of the Brazilian selection, who hopes that the PSG player has not aggravated his injury by trying to continue despite the sprain. It will now be a question of knowing at what stage this injury is.

In the event of a grade 1 sprain, recovery is possible within one to two weeks. Otherwise, it represents an absence from the grounds for several weeks, often from 3 to 6. If his duration of unavailability is not yet known, the Auriverde could well have played his last minutes in the World Cup this Thursday evening… Unless Brazil goes far and manages to heal in record time , but this is far from over for the PSG star… For his part, Tite was unfailingly optimistic, assuring that Neymar would play again in this World Cup and that it was not necessary worry about his injury.
