Neymar injury: Brazilian star in tears due to ankle injury during World Cup win

Neymar was in tears on the Brazil bench after an apparent ankle injury sustained in the World Cup win over Serbia.

The PSG star appeared to recover from an injury when he was caught on a counter-attack in the second half of a 2-0 win at the Lusail Stadium.

He continued to play before being dropped in the 79th minute.

He appeared to have ice stuck to his ankle and was clearly distraught as the team staff worked on him.

The team doctor was cautious about the prognosis for the Selecao star after the match, pointing to an “injury” to the ankle, but they have to wait 24-48 hours to make a full assessment.

In the next match, Brazil will play against Switzerland.

Neymar has yet to win the World Cup with the Selecao last time in 2002.

Richarlison’s two goals were enough to secure all three points on Thursday night and jointly lead the fledgling group with the Swiss who had defeated Cameroon earlier in the day.
