The Brazil forward spent some time on the ground after he was tackled by the Siberian player, trying to withstand the pain.

The team trainers instantly treated Neymar with ice packs on the bench. After the match ended, Neymar limped to the Brazil locker room.

Rodrigo Lasmar, Brazil’s team doctor said, “The injury on his right ankle is a direct trauma. Due to the impact from the knee of the Serbian player, we started immediate treatment on the bench.”

He will continue with the physio sessions. However, they can only access the player’s injury after 24 to 48 hours.

Tite assures Neymar will keep playing

Despite the injury, Tite is certain Neymar will be fine to continue playing at the World Cup.

He calmly said, “We are confident he will continue playing. He will continue playing in the World Cup.”

An Italian Journalist, Fabrizio Romano, shared that the Brazillian player will likely continue playing for the team:

We’re hoping for the best for him and Brazil. Speedy recovery, Neymar!
