World Cup | Injured, Neymar should not play again with Brazil before the eighth

Thursday evening, after Brazil’s success against Serbia (2-0), Tite made a promise: “Neymar will play again during this World Cup“. The Auriverde coach had tried to reassure a whole people while at the same time, his medical staff was procrastinating by recalling that any conclusion concerning the star’s injury was still hasty. The day after the match, everything was much clearer.” Ney “suffers from a ligament injury, cured by Brazilian medical staff, and could not play again before a possible round of 16 even if Rodrigo Lasmar, Canarinha’s doctor, did not wish to communicate a precise return date.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar has already started a recovery process, as has his teammate Danilo who is suffering from a similar injury. The two players were therefore to be kept out of the matches against Switzerland, this Monday (5:00 p.m.) and against Cameroon, next Friday (8:00 p.m.).
