Uol: Neymar may miss the 1/8 finals of the World Cup, but will be ready for the quarter-finals
MOSCOW, 2 Dec – The participation of Brazil striker Neymar in the 1/8 finals of the World Cup in Qatar is questionable, according to uol.com.br.
Neymar suffered a sprained ankle in Group G’s first round match against Serbia (2-0). Later, Neymar showed symptoms of a viral infection. As noted, the striker has progress in recovery, however, he will start training only on Saturday and will be on the bench in the 1/8 finals of the World Cup, and will come out as a substitute only as a last resort. Neymar should be ready for the quarter-finals if the Brazilians go there.
