Neymar: Brazilian’s Injury Struggle May End World Cup Dream
Brazilian forward, Neymar, is struggling with an injury return, which will make him miss out on the clash against Cameroon on Thursday.
According to reports, the Paris Saint-Germain forward would also be out of his country’s round-16 clash next week.
However, fears are increasing that Neymar’s World Cup may be done as he struggles to recover in time for Brazil’s first World Cup knockout game.
After all final games have been played this week, the Samba boys will either tie against Portugal, Ghana, South Korea or Uruguay in the round of 16.
According to Marca, Neymar’s ankle injury he sustained in Brazil’s opening match against Serbia may be more severe than the minor ankle sprain the doctor speculated.
More reports claim that Neymar’s injury will last up to three weeks which might only have him play in the 2022 World Cup final in Qatar if Brazil advances that far.
Neymar is still unable to do any significant weight-bearing activities, therefore he is only allowed to perform conditioning and rehab workouts in the water.
Naija News understands that since being withdrawn from the Serbia game, the 30-year-old has received round-the-clock care that combines physiotherapy, cryotherapy, and electrotherapy.
However, His arrival has been delayed repeatedly.
If the star eventually misses out on the World Cup, the Brazilian talisman’s injury will be a major blow for his country and for his footballing career.
Neymar, who will be 34 at the next World Cup event, would wait four more years to return to the Mundial.
