This is Neymar’s ankle


The Brazilian player shows the state of his joint three days after his injury against Serbia

Neymar, the star of Brazil, injured last Thursday in the game against Serbia, showed the state of his ankle last Sunday evening. He is swollen a lot and it seems difficult for him to recover in time to play the World Cup. Although the PSG footballer is confident and is doing everything he can to lead the Canarinha to a new title, one they have not won since 2002.

Last Thursday, the world fell on top of the Brazilian. His image on the bench with his head tucked into his shirt as if crying while the team doctor iced his right ankle after being substituted late in the opening game against Serbia froze his country’s fans. The worst was feared and it was even initially speculated that the PSG striker could miss the rest of the World Cup.

However, as the hours progressed, the initial dark clouds lifted and it seems that everything has been left with a fright. After undergoing some medical tests, the Canarinha striker could be 100% fit for the final stage of the World Cup -round of 16- and will miss the rest of the group stage. Neymar is unlikely to play in the second leg of this round against Switzerland next Monday and very likely not against Cameroon on December 2, a game the five-time champions hope to arrive with their homework done.

And it is that, if it goes through first in the group, Brazil will not play until December 5, a priori enough time for the PSG footballer to recover to face the fight for the sixth world title with the maximum guarantees to go. Despite the undeniable quality of the former Barça player, his coach, Tite, will have no major problems filling his gap. They have plenty of artillery and have called up no fewer than nine top-level strikers for Qatar: Neymar, Vinicius, Richarlison, Raphinha, Gabriel Jesus, Rodrygo, Antony, Martinelli and Pedro.
