Rodrigo Lasmar believes that it is urgent to wait after the sprained ankle of the Brazilian star.
The Brazilian playmaker Neymar, replaced in the last minutes of the match won by his team against Serbia 2-0 in the World Cup, was hit in the right ankle and left the stadium limping. Back on the bench, he took off his right foot and removed his sock and shin guard. In pictures taken by AFP photographers, we see a pigeon’s egg which has formed on the Brazilian’s right malleolus. The doctor of the selection delivers a first diagnosis, the star suffers from a sprain of the right ankle. “His ankle was a little swollen. We started the treatment on the bench. But you have to wait 24 or 48 hours to find out more. We have not yet planned any additional examinations. If needed, we will. But we have to wait until tomorrow (Friday) to find out more. It’s really too early to say moresaid Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar.
“A technical-tactical observation on Neymar: he stayed on the pitch, especially on the two goals, with ankle pain because the team needed him. Which shows his ability to bear pain“Said Tite, the coach. “He stayed on the pitch for nearly 11 minutes after his sprain, enduring the pain. Until he can’t go on anymoreconfirmed Mr. Lasmar. Brazil’s next game in Group H of the World Cup is scheduled for Monday against Switzerland.
