  • Tite confirms Manchester United new boy Fred will miss Brazil's World Cup opener

Brazil and Switzerland each have one point.

He had been playing keep-away with a few other players when he started showing signs of discomfort in his ankle. A few moments later he finally made a decision to leave, kicking a ball away with his left foot before limping away beside the team doctor. "He complained of pain and so he went to physio and he will train normally tomorrow".

"Neymar left the training session with some pain in his right ankle because of the number of fouls he suffered in the game against Switzerland", federation spokesman Vinicius Rodrigues said.

We are probably going to see a completely different game plan being put into motion in the next match that Brazil have in the World Cup Group Stages and their next match is on Friday June 22and it is Costa Rica they will be playing.

After taking on Costa Rica, Brazil will complete Group E by facing Serbia in Moscow.




Brazilian media had already been speculating that Brazil could be hiding Neymar's real condition after he couldn't finish practice on Tuesday.

"Neymar felt some pain in his right ankle, so that's the reason he left training". At 23.30 pm, Brazil will clash with Switzerland and today's final match is between Croatia with Nigeria at 12.30 am.

Neymar was sidelined for about three months earlier this year because of an unrelated right-foot injury. He was limping when he talked to reporters after the match, when doctors dismissed anything serious.

However, the world's most expensive player made a scoring return to action in friendly wins over Croatia and Austria prior to Brazil's arrival in Russian Federation, and lines up alongside Chelsea's Willian and Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus in a menacing front three.

Brazil striker Neymar new hairstyle before the start of the world Cup. "He is a very important player for us".
