We know a little more about the nature of Neymar’s injury. PSG’s Brazilian striker suffered a sprain in his right ankle during a 2-0 win against Serbia on Thursday. He left the stadium limping. This Friday, his entourage was confident of a possible return to the 1/8 finals, which will take place on December 5 or 6, depending on whether Brazil finishes first or second in their group.

Following the announcement that Neymar and right-back Danilo had passed their exams at the Aspetar Center in Doha, the Brazilian federation has given more details. In the voice of the doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, in a video posted online around 4:00 p.m., we thus learn that Neymar suffers from a “lateral ligament injury” at the level of the ankle, accompanied by “a slight swelling of the bone.”

The immediate consequence of this is the defeat of Neymar in the second match against Switzerland on the following Monday (17:00). “We will not have these two players (Neymar and Danilo) for our next match, but they are continuing treatment with the aim of restoring them until the end of the competition,” the doctor said.

Brazilian media, for their part, assure that Neymar’s package is also booked for the third meeting with Cameroon, on Friday, December 2. Everything suggests that this is indeed the case, especially if Brazil is already guaranteed a place in the 1/8 finals before this match. Until then, Neymar will be able to recover to return to lend a hand to his rebounds, who are counting on him to become a sixth global star. “We have confidence that Neymar will play again in this World Cup,” coach Tite said on Thursday evening.
