MADRID, 25 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The player of the Brazilian team Neymar Junior set off the alarms this Thursday after leaving the field of play due to an ankle injury after a hard attack, although the Brazilian team, Adenor Leonardo Bacchi ‘Tite’, took iron out of the matter and he reassured the Brazilians by assuring that “he is going to play the Cup”.
“You can be sure that Neymar is going to play in the Cup. I am absolutely certain of that. He is going to play,” said the coach at a press conference after his team’s match against Serbia, which ended 2-0 for the of the yellow green in his World Cup debut.
The images of Neymar being substituted in the 79th minute, in which the Brazilian could be seen breaking down in tears and hiding his face under his shirt, sowed panic in the Rio de Janeiro country, which is looking forward to its sixth World Cup 20 years after the last one.
In addition, the PSG winger wore a transparent bandage with several ice packs on his right ankle and, after the match, left the pitch alone with visible grimaces and limping. In the absence of more evidence, Neymar would have a sprain that for Tite will not be an impediment.
