Neymar hobbles out of Brazil training session after 15 minutes

Neymar hobbles out of Brazil training session after 15 minutes

Brazil were hit by Neymar's decision to sit out Tuesday's training session because of a pain in his right ankle.

"Brazil team training under way and Neymar participating normally", tweeted the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

The Brazil camp has since confirmed that Neymar was feeling pain after several fouls committed against him in the opening match against the Swiss and is racing against time to be fit for the match with Costa Rica.

The forward trained with his team-mates in Sochi on Tuesday but hobbled away from the session after only 15 minutes.

"Preparation continues for the second game of the World Cup". "Since today was only a recovery session for the starters, and he complained about pain, he ended going to rehabilitation".

Disclosed the mystery of the "intermittent day" on Venus
The atmosphere in Venus is effectively shortening the days by making it spin faster, a new study has found, reports ScienceNews. Now astronomers argue that the interaction of the mountains and atmosphere of Venus can also increase the duration of the day.


On Instagram on Monday, Neymar posted a picture of his foot while receiving treatment alongside the message "work hard".

PSG's star forward arrived in Russian Federation after several months recovering from a fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot, an injury picked up in February.

Brazil and Switzerland are two points behind group leaders Serbia, who beat Costa Rica in their group E opener. In 1998, Alan Shearer was fouled a whopping 10 times in England's curtain-jerker against Tunisia.

Brazil coach Tite said before the tournament started that Neymar wouldn't likely be in his best form until the third match of the group stage. "He is a very important player for us". "When he is on the field he helps us a lot".
