Brazil dealt injury blow as Neymar limps off with swollen ankle

Brazil’s joy following its 2-0 win over Serbia appeared to be dampened almost immediately as it became apparent star man Neymar suffered a significant ankle injury.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was substituted with 10 minutes remaining after going down under a challenge and Neymar looked emotional once he got to the bench, sitting down and covering his face with his shirt.


Cameras caught Neymar looking down at his ankle, which appeared to be very swollen as he made his way off the pitch.



It will no doubt be a huge concern to Brazil — and football fans around the world — whose chances of success would decrease considerably without Neymar.
