There is a chance that Neymar Jr will not be able to play for Brazil any further in their group stage matches after he picked up an ankle injury in their opening match against Serbia.
The Brazilian football player is worrying about his ankle injury and its possible future implications. Even with Neymar absent, Brazil’s two goals from Richarlison leaves them in good shape for the remainder of the tournament. As clashes against Switzerland and Cameroon follow, the side look to continue moving through the gears and earn a place in the round of 16.
Brazil is one of the favourites to win the World Cupthis year, and their progress is to be expected. Assistant manager Cléber Xavier told the Guardian that the team has learned from their past mistakes and will prepare meticulously this time around. We lost Dani and Renato before the tournament, and Neymar wasn’t himself because he was carrying an injury. So, we had to build a new team during the tournament.
Now things are different. If we lose a player we know well, we’ll be able to deal with it better. We’re confident that we’ve fully understood Neymar’s teammates and can now face these Group Stage matches without him. Since the news broke, the superstar took to social media to offer some hope for a speedy recovery.
