South American giants and FIFA World Cup‘s most successful team Brazil might have kicked-off their World cup campaign to a good start but they have faced a major setback already with 2 more Group stage matches to play. The setbacks have arrived in the form of Injuries as PSG number 10 Neymar Jr. and Juventus right back Danilo have been ruled out for the remainder of the FIFA World cup 2022.
Both of the players sustained an Injury in the second-half during Brazil’s 2-0 victory against Serbia on Friday’s last fixture of Group G. Neymar’s pre-mature departure from the Squad will prove to be a major headache for manager Tite, given Neymar’s form heading into the tournament.
The most expensive player of all time’s stats this season have been simply sensational – scoring 15 goals and providing 12 assists in all competitions this season for his club. He was seen limp off the pitch in the 80th minute, 11 minutes after he became the recipient Nikola Milenkovic’s strong challenge.
While entering the tunnel, an awkward swelling was evident in his right ankle as he was seen leave the pitch with tears. Injuries during World cup and Neymar seems to have an unwanted connection as the previous 2 editions in 2014 and 2018 ended in a similar fashion for him.
On the other, Danilo suffered an ankle injury in the last minutes of Thursday’s win and was seen walking off the field at full time. Head coach said after the match that he is hoping for Neymar to play but recent reports have claimed that Neymar’s final world cup will end due to Injury.
Due to the shock that he had with the knee of the Serbian player, we started immediately the treatment on the bench. He continued with the treatment with the physiotherapy. We need 24-48 hours to have a better understanding through the MRI. Tomorrow we will have a new assessment. Now we need to wait, we cannot make any premature comments on his evolution. We need to wait. He stayed 11 minutes on the pitch after his injury up until the point he could no longer continue. Neymar, he felt this pain throughout the game, but he decided to stay on the pitch to help the team. It’s remarkable that he could bear this pain while the team is playing. You can be sure that Neymar will play in the World Cup. You can be absolutely sure of this, Neymar will play in the World Cup.
