Brazil Doctor Confirms Neymar’s Injury Isn’t Too Serious

Brazil doctor Rodrigo Lasmar has revealed that Neymar did not suffer a serious injury against Cameroon

Neymar hobbled out of Brazil’s friendly win over Cameroon just after eight minute, causing his club concern on the same evening Kylian Mbappe suffered a shoulder blow.

Yet Lasmar offered a positive initial assessment, stating that Neymar would go for a scan before any firm evaluation was given but remaining confident it would not provide a major setback.

“[Neymar] was complaining of discomfort in the right groin area,” Lasmar told SporTV. “He left the pitch, was evaluated and started treatment in the dressing room.

“It will take a little more time for a better evaluation, with an MRI, but it does not appear to be a serious injury. It’s important to wait a little longer, 24 hours, to see how it evolves.”
