World Cup 2022: Neymar out for Brazil vs Switzerland and doubtful for Cameroon, but his World Cup is not over

Neymar doesn’t have much luck with World Cups. Brazil‘s big star was injured in their opening game at the 2022 World Cup, in which he suffered serious treatment from Serbia‘s players to the point of having to ask for a substitution in the second half.

Injured, an ankle problem will mean he will miss the second match of the group stage and makes him a serious doubt for the third.

The doctor of the Brazilian National Team, Rodrigo Lesmar, announced at the end of the game against the Serbians that Neymar suffered a sprained right ankle. He also asked for calm, since it would take 24-48 hours to know the extent of the injury.

Along these lines, people within the player’s close circles said that time was needed to understand the situation.

Tite, on the other hand, chose to be very optimistic, assuring that his star man will continue in Doha. Just like his teammates in the mixed zone, both in public and off the record. Although on Thursday night he began treatment, this Friday will prove to be the key day to determine how the issue is really going. And things are not looking good.

Neymar ruled out against Switzerland

As MARCA has learned, Neymar will not make it for Monday’s match against Switzerland, at 17:00. While his progress is being closely monitored, the idea at the moment is that he will not play in the third matchday, against Cameroon on Friday at 20:00, if it is not necessary in terms of qualification.

Sources close to Ney say that he has ruled out saying goodbye to the tournament.

Tite, in any case, will have to rely on a deep roster. Rodrygo Goes, Gabriel Jesus or Antony are the best placed to enter the XI. Fred or even Bruno Guimaraes could also come in, and Lucas Paqueta could be moved forward.

Brazil‘s players are upset because they think Serbia went out to hurt Ney. This afternoon, the CBF is also expected to report on Neymar‘s condition.

That may come during the training session, at 15:00 with the presence of family and friends, with whom a dinner will take place afterward.

The media will be able to watch the entire session.
