Neymar to miss out for injury once again

The Brazilian star hasn’t recovered from his leg injury and wouldn’t take part in the international break.

Neymar has been ruled out of Brazil’s World Cup qualifying games against Venezuela and Uruguay after failing to recover from a leg injury.

The PSG ace picked up the injury during the Champions League clash against Istanbul Basaksehir and manager Thomas Tuchel insisted that Neymar would miss around four weeks.

Notwithstanding Tuchel’s advice, Brazil national team called up their star forward to get him ready for next week’s fixture against Uruguay.

Now after finding that Neymar would not recover in time, the Brazilian national team has sent him back to Paris.

Speaking about Neymar’s exclusion, the team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said,

‘We were hopeful that he could play, that’s why we brought him to Brazil,

He improved but not enough so that he’ll be ready for the game on Tuesday against Uruguay. The backroom staff decided to release Neymar.’ 

Brazil have started their World Cup Qualifiers season on a strong note after winning against Bolivia and Peru, with Neymar producing a fantastic display against the latter.

The 28-year-old scored a hat-trick during the 4-2 win and also eclipsed former Brazilian icon, Ronaldo, to become the national team’s second-highest goal scorer.

Neymar has made a total of four appearances in Ligue 1 this season while missing out few games due to Coronavirus and red card suspension.

The former Barca star’s presence would definitely be game-changer however Tite’s side has plenty of attacking options to rely on.
