Neymar withdrew injured. Here what is known

Brazil managed to win in their debut with Richarlison’s double, in a match in which, surely, we saw the best goal so far in the World Cup. Although certainly those of Tite hardly find a way to open the can, once the first fell, the South Americans would have been able to continue straight, had it not been for the Serbian goalkeeper at the service of Italian Torino, Vanja Milinkovic, who ended up becoming the figure of his team.

Everything could have been perfect for those of Tite, who now lead group G, because Switzerland, who also won their match, did so by the slightest difference. However, today in Brazil the victory over Switzerland second line news returnsWell, Neymar Junior, the star of PSG in Paris, with a past in Barcelona and emerged in the minors from the historic Santos de Pelé, is a concern, after to have been beaten, already at the close of the meeting with the Europeans.

The 78th minute was running and Tite sought to close the game, first introducing Fred to the detriment of Lucas Paquetá and later withdrawing Vinicius to give Rodrygo play. Right there, simultaneously, the alarms of the bank went off, when Neymar Jr., remained lying on the ground, while he complained of a discomfort in the ankle. The drama increased when the same player asks Tite for the change.

Thus, after the departure of Richarlison, the author of the double, who left to make way for Gabriel Jesus, the coach of the canarinha decides to rest the star, putting 22-year-old striker Anthony on the pitchwith a present at Manchester United.

Neymar’s medical report

The last thing that was known about the PSG player was that he cried inconsolably on the substitute bench, after the meeting with Serbia. The sensations are not good and there is already talk that, most likely, the Brazilian star will not be able to see the pitch againfor the rest of the world.

About an hour after the game ended, the doctor from the Brazilian Football Confederation spoke about the matter and stated that Neymar’s injury consisted of a sprain and it would be necessary to wait, at least, 48 hours, to see the evolution of the lesion.

“Neymar suffered a sprained right ankle. He had some swelling in his ankle, we started the ice treatment on the bench and now he has followed the physiotherapy treatment. There is no imaging exam scheduled. If there is a need, we will do it. But that will be decided by the extent of his evaluation this Friday. The expectation is the observation. Any talk of evolution, its sequel, is premature. We don’t have any answers, it’s important to wait.”

For now, it remains to wait for the time announced by the Brazilian medical staff to find out what will happen to the player, who reaches his third world cupafter having attended the 2014 World Cups, where Brazil was local and 2018 in Russia.
