Brazil team doctors have given an update on Da Silva Santos Neymar’s injury at the ongoing Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The injury incident happened during Brazil’s 2-0 win over Serbia in the World Cup on Thursday.
Brazilians will have to anxiously know what is next for the Paris Saint-Germain forward after he was forced off during their 2-0 victory.
Brazil’s number 9, Richarlison scored twice to hand Brazil a perfect start in Group G but the bad news is that they could now be without one of their strikers.
Neymar got emotional as tears rolled down his cheeks as he was being attended to by physios and was consoled by his teammates.
As he visibly limped off the pitch to Brazil’s dressing room, pitchside photographers captured the immediate swelling to his right ankle.
“He’s just sprained his right ankle and it’s already swollen a little,” Brazil’s team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said after the game.
‘It is important to see how he will respond. We have already started the treatment and we need to be calm and patient.
“It’s too early to say.
“You have to be calm to define how the evolution will be.”
