Neymar injury scare after Brazil win26 November 2022
Brazilian striker Neymar should be fine to continue in the World Cup despite limping off with a swollen ankle during his team's 2-0 victory over Serbia on Thursday, coach Tite said. "We are confident that Neymar will continue playing, he will continue playing in the World Cup," Tite told reporters, confessing that he was initially unaware of his striker's injury. "I didn't see Neymar was hurt. And he had the capacity to overcome this, he even tricked me." Team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Brazil would wait 24-48 hours before assessing Neymar's injury.
