World Cup: ankle sprain confirmed for Neymar

Did we witness Neymar's package for the rest of the competition live during Brazil-Serbia?

Hit in the ankle in the 79th minute, the Paris Saint-Germain striker had to give way to Antony.

On a tackle from Serbian defender Nikola Milenkovic, Neymar saw his right ankle twist under the weight of the opposing knee.

We are then in the 67th minute of the match.

The Brazilian then remains almost 12 minutes on the ground, before sitting down on the ground on a throw-in from Alex Sandro, to ask for the change.

His captain Thiago Silva came to the news straight away.

The PSG superstar didn't necessarily look very concerned at the time, even though he was already holding his right ankle after unlacing those shoes.

After a few minutes on the ground, alongside the healers, the Brazilian joined the Brazilian bench, where Vinicius or Lucas Paqueta was already seated, without really hobbling.

We were still waiting at that time for the details of this ankle discomfort.

A few minutes later, when Brazil had already secured victory against Serbia, images of the Brazilian playing master in tears, with an ice pack on his ankle on the bench.

At the end of the match, Lucas Paqueta was a bit reassuring about his compatriot's injury: “We'll see.

He felt a little something.

I think he's fine.

“Not enough to reassure the Brazilian people after these images of their idol in tears, despite the victory against Serbia (2-0).

In pictures taken by AFP photographers, we see a pigeon's egg which has formed on the Brazilian's right malleolus.

The Paris SG striker was then filmed limping on his return to the locker room.

The doctor of the Brazilian selection confirmed Neymar's injury to the microphone of Itatiaia radio: “He sprained his right ankle.

We haven't had time to do a more complete assessment yet, but the ankle has already swelled up a bit.

It's important to wait the first 24 hours, see how he will react.

Now it's just a matter of calm and a little patience.

“In the event of a package, it is the attacking leader of one of the big favorites of the 2022 World Cup who would leave Qatar.

Brazil are due to face Switzerland for their second match on Monday, November 28 at 5 p.m.
