Brazil won, but there is maximum concern for Neymar: it was confirmed that he has an injury

Brazil began its participation in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with a 2-0 victory against Serbia, but the day left coach Tite with a concern: Neymar, the great figure of the team, left the field after suffering an injury to his right ankle.

The PSG footballer was replaced 79 minutes into the game and Antony entered in his place. Once he sat on the substitute bench, the signs of pain became more evident. The gesture of covering his face with his shirt, with tears in his eyes and being comforted by his companions, darkened the outlook for fans of the South American cast. Immediately, the staff doctors placed ice on the affected area.

Once the referee signaled the end of the match, the Brazilian went to the locker room walking by his own means, but limping. His right foot was totally uncovered: without booty, stocking or bandages. This exposed the incipient swelling in the ankle.

What injury does Neymar have?

According to Rodrigo Lasmar, doctor of the Brazilian National Team, Neymar suffers a sprain in the right ankle from the blow he receivedbut it is still early to make a full diagnosis.

“Neymar has a sprain on his right ankle. It was hit by a player from the Serbian team. At that moment the sprain occurred. We put ice on it and we already started the treatment. We wait 24/48 hours to have a clearer idea of ​​the situation. He will continue with physiotherapy, ”explained the doctor.

However, it made the matter less serious: in fact, they will not do another study in the short term and will wait 24 to 48 hours to see how it evolves.
