Brazil entered the 2022 World Cup successfully by winning their first victory against Serbia (2-0) on Thursday. But the Brazilians are worried. Having touched an ankle, Neymar suffers a sprain and the duration of his unavailability is not yet known.
Neymar was injured against Serbia
The party was a bit spoiled for Brazil. For her first match of the 2022 World Cup, Seleao took on the role of favorite by dominating Serbia (2-0). But he will also worry about his star Neymar (30).
The Brazilian striker left his teammates in the 80th minute, hitting his ankle. Moments earlier, Nikola Milenkovic had inadvertently kneed Auriverde’s foot in the grass. I didn’t see right away that he was hurt , Tite confessed after the meeting. The Brazilian coach and his medical staff were able to realize this when the Paris Saint-Germain player sat worried on the lawn.
After returning to the bench, Neymar burst into tears. Seeing his swollen ankle, perhaps he was thinking back to his 2014 World Cup, when he left the tournament in the quarter-finals following a serious back injury against Colombia, but also the injuries that often marred his last few seasons in Paris SG. And if the tears had dried as they left the locker room, the concern remained palpable in the Brazilian selection.
Will Neymar be able to play again in this World Cup?
I was able to talk to him, confided his teammate Rodrygo. He told me that he had something wrong with his ankle, but he’s not sure yet, we’ll see. A few minutes later, the verdict fell. He sprained his right ankle. We haven’t had time to do a more thorough examination yet, but the ankle has already swollen a bit. It is important to wait for the first 24 hours to see how he reacts. Now it’s just a matter of calm and patience said team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar.
This is now the expectation of Brazil and its fans. The Parisian is already very uncertain about the Brazilians’ next match, against Switzerland on Monday. Don’t worry, Neymar will still play in this World Cup. He will continue to play, you can be sure of that , said Tito. Cou method or true certainty? Response in the next few hours.
