Neymar did not leave the stadium on Thursday night looking in good shape. The player’s injury was a negative aspect of his team’s victory when he injured his ankle and left the stadium with a serious expression of concern. On his way out of the mixed zone, Neymar could be seen crestfallen, supporting his injured foot and limping.
Despite being asked by reporters about his physical condition, the Brazil star refused to say anything at all. The next few hours will be crucial to know the extent of his ankle injury.
Despite the obvious swelling, inside the Brazilian national team they say that it could be nothing more than a scare.
An hour after the end of the match, Ramiro Lasmar explained that Neymar suffered a sprain and that it will be necessary to wait 48 hours to see how it evolves. The whole of Brazil is on tenterhooks over the player’s ankle.
