Rodrigo Lasmar confirms the injury, guarantees that no image examination is foreseen for the number 10 and avoids predicting the player

Right ankle injury Neymar is a matter of concern in the technical committee of the selection🇧🇷 The player, replaced in the 35th minute of the second half, cried in reserve and went down to the locker room assisted by a physiotherapist. The Doctor of Selection, Rodrigo Lasmarhe admitted that the case worries.

Lasmar said shortly after the match that he was “concerned but optimistic”. The medical team will observe the evolution in the next few hours and do not rule out carrying out an image examination to verify the extent of the lesion.

“Neymar sprained his right ankle. He presented with edema, swelling and we have already started treatment with ice on the spot. We will have to wait 24 or 48 hours to evaluate and no image exam is planned for him at the moment. Our expectation is observation and our position is to wait to give a position on Neymar’s ankle sprain” commented Rodrigo Lasmar in the press conference after the match.

The number 10 was the most wanted Brazilian player on the pitch in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Serbia. Even so, he avoided complaining about his opponents and tried to get up and go into the game at all times. In the final round, however, he was seen dragging his foot more than once. Around the 34th minute, after spraining his right ankle for about 11 minutes, he fell to the ground and was replaced by Antony.

“You can be sure Neymar will play in the cup. I’m absolutely sure of that. He will play in the cup,” manager Tite said when asked about the number 10’s injury.

Neymar, of course, was the star of the mixed zone. Players were evasive when talking about their partner.

“Neymar was fine, he was getting ice on his foot, I hope it’s nothing serious and he can be with us in the next training session,” full back Alex Sandro said

“He was talking to the doctors, I haven’t spoken to him yet,” Antony commented. “Neymar is an athlete who always takes a lot of hits in the match. We hope he recovers as quickly as possible, we know how important he is for our team,” he added.
