Brazil, Neymar will not be able to participate in either of Brazil's upcoming World Cup matches since he has sustained ligament injury

According to the team doctor for Brazil, Neymar will not be able to participate in either of Brazil’s upcoming World Cup matches since he has sustained ligament injury in his right ankle.

After taking a hefty hit from Nikola Milenkovic during Thursday’s match against Serbia, the 30-year-old attacker was taken off the field and replaced in the 80th minute.

Pictures showed that Neymar’s right ankle was swollen as he was having treatment, and he sat with his face hidden the entire time.

He said it was “one of the hardest moments of my career” when the injury occurred.

Neymar stated on his Instagram account that “nothing in my life came easy” and that “I’ve always had to work for my objectives and goals.” “I have never wanted anything unpleasant on anyone, and I have always assisted those who were in need.

“I’m injured, yes it’s not nice, it will hurt, but I’m sure I will have the chance to come back because I will do everything possible to help my country, my teammates, and myself,” he said. “I’m injured, yes it’s not nice, it will hurt.”

Right-back In addition, Danilo will sit out the next two contests due to ankle injury.

On Monday at 16:00 GMT, Brazil will play Switzerland for the second time in Group G. The following game for Brazil is scheduled for next Friday against Cameroon (19:00 BST).

“Neymar and Danilo underwent an MRI on Friday afternoon, and we found ligament damage in the ankle of both of them,” stated Rodrigo Lasmar, the doctor with the Brazil national football team.

“It is essential to maintain composure and take things one day at a time. The plan is to find a way to use them in the remaining stages of the competition.

After Brazil’s victory over Serbia, head coach Tite gave an interview in which he stated that the team was “confident that Neymar will continue playing in the World Cup” and that he “didn’t see he was injured – the capacity he has to overcome it tricked even me.” Tite also stated that he “didn’t see Neymar was injured – the capacity he has to overcome it tricked even me

Over the past few years, the striker for Paris St. Germain has had a variety of issues related to injuries to his right foot.

After suffering torn ligaments in his right ankle in 2019, he was unable to participate in the Copa America. In 2021, he suffered a similar injury that sidelined him for several weeks.

During the match against Serbia, Neymar was fouled nine times, which resulted in him drawing four more free kicks than any other player in the 2018 World Cup to this point.
