Brazil have suffered from a massive blow within their squad as superstar Neymar has been ruled out of the group stage fixtures of the FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar alongside Danilo. Brazil clinched a comfortable 2-0 win over Serbia but the PSG superstar got injured during the clash on Thursday. The 30-year-old was in fine form before the World Cup started and was expected to be an influencial character in the dressing and the field as well for Brazil in this year’s World Cup.
“Neymar and Danilo went through a MRI on Friday afternoon and we found ligament damage in the ankle of both of them,” said a Brazil official.
“They will miss the next game for sure and we will be cautious as they will undergo treatment in order to try to get them in shape so they can play again in the World Cup.”
Notably, Neymar was the most fouled player from the Brazil team in their clash against Serbia. He was fouled 9 times during the match. (More to follow)
