It isn't a World Cup without a Neymar injury to crack up anxiety levels in Brazil. He damaged his back in 2014 and broke a foot ahead of 2018 and on Thursday night he limped out of Doha's Lusail Stadium with a strapping applied to his right ankle following a collision in the second half of a 2-0 win against Serbia.

He tried to continue before he was replaced by Antony in the 80th minute, and was in tears as he received medical treatment on the bench, pulling his shirt over his head.

Neymar was left distraught after suffering a sprained ankle in Brazil's win against Serbia A picture of Neymar with his boot off showed that there was severe swelling on his ankle But the 30-yaer-old Paris Saint-Germain playmaker was able to make his way back to the team bus without the need for crutches or a protective boot. 'Neymar has a right ankle trauma,' said Brazil's team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar. 'Due to the impact that he had with the knee of the Serbia player we immediately started the treatment when he was on the bench. 'With physiotherapy, we need to wait 24 to 48 hours.

We have not scheduled an MRI and tomorrow we will have a new assessment. We need to wait. We can't make any premature comments on his condition. 'He stayed on the pitch and continued playing for 11 minutes, before he was substituted.' Real Madrid forward Rodrygo, who came on as a second-half sub, told Brazil TV channel Globo after the match Neymar had hurt his ankle.
