Qatar 2022: Neymar sprained his right ankle

The doctor of the Brazilian team, Rodrigo Lesmar, confirmed that Neymar suffers a sprained right ankle and that we will have to wait between 24 and 48 hours to know the extent of the injury.

“Neymar has a sprain. We have treated him immediately on the bench and now he continues with the physio. We have to wait 24/48 hours to better understand the extent of the injury,” said Lesmar.

Tite, coach of the Brazilian team, added that Neymar was playing eleven minutes with the pain in the ankle, before leaving the substitution at minute 80 during the first match of the verdeamarela team against Serbia, Group G match of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, held at the Lusail Stadium.

The strategist trusts that Neymar will be able to continue playing in the World Cupdespite the injury he suffered this Thursday in the match against Serbia.

We trust that Neymar will be able to continue playing“Tite said at a press conference, despite the fact that his right ankle was already hurting after a tackle by a Serbian player.

“He has done it to help his team. He is very admirable,” added Tite.

The Brazilian team won 2-0 against their counterpart from Serbia, with two goals from striker Richarlison.
