Neymar trained with the ball and the chances of him being in Brazil vs. Korea | VIDEO

The illusion of the millions of fans of the Brazilian team to see Neymar in action against South Korea, for the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, is growing. The star trained this Saturday with his teammates, with the ball, for the first time since the injury he suffered in his right ankle and which kept him out of the last two games of the ‘Canarinha‘.

‘Ney’ touched the ball again from the match against Serbia in a training session behind closed doors at the Grand Hamad Stadium, where the Brazilian team exercises during the World Cup.

The attacker worked with the group in what is a definitive test to find out if he has recovered from the injury to the ligaments in his right ankle that he suffered due to the continuous attacks by Serbian players and that forced him to miss the games against Switzerland and Cameroon .

The question is whether Neymar will be ready for the quarterfinal match against South Korea on Monday. The ’10’ has spent these days in the concentration hotel, with recovery exercises in the pool and without forcing.

Without Neymar, Brazil beat Switzerland (1-0) and lost to Cameroon (0-1), leaving a single goal along the way and an incipient concern about the heaviness of the ‘Canarinha’ attack, which has also lost due to injury substitute striker Gabriel Jesús and Alex Telles. Their absences are already confirmed for the remainder of the World Cup.

If he does not recover in time, Tite could opt for Rodrygo in the ’10’ position, as against Cameroon. “Ney has given me a lot of confidence because he is a genius in this position. Playing there is very difficult, you have few spaces, you have to be very fast, but I like playing there”, said the Real Madrid footballer after the defeat against the African team.
