Vn88 newspaper has revealed: Neymar is expected to help the Brazilian team quench their thirst for World Cup championships lasting two decades. However, the striker born in 1992 soon got injured.
Neymar sprained his ankle during Brazil’s 2-0 win over Serbia on November 25. Vn88.cx has revealed that the PSG star will be absent from Brazil’s next two matches in the World Cup group stage against Switzerland and Cameroon.
Neymar collapsed on the field after receiving a series of rough tackles from the Serbian player. The Brazilian striker was fouled 9 times after only 80 minutes of play.
The injury of the former Barcelona star made Brazilian football fans worried.
“We can say that Brazil will not have Neymar’s services for the next group stage matches. But he is undergoing treatment to try to recover as quickly as possible,” said doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, “Currently, It is not clear when Neymar will actually return.”
VN88 quoted the doctor in a quick interview. “Today, I faced one of the most difficult moments of my career. It is sad that it continues to happen at the World Cup. The feeling of being injured is uncomfortable and painful. But I am sure I will. come back. I will do my best to help the Brazilian team,” the PSG star shared.
Vn88cx newspaper quoted Neymar’s spokesman: Serbian players committed a total of 12 errors in the match against Brazil. 9 of the bad situations of Serbian players were aimed at Neymar. Before Neymar played, no player in the 2022 World Cup was fouled more than five times.
The 30-year-old star identifies Qatar 2022 as the last World Cup. He also had perfect momentum before going to Qatar. The former Barcelona star imprinted his shoes on 13 goals (7 goals, 6 assists) in Ligue 1 2022/23. Neymar also has the highest number of moves forward per game on average in the top 5 in Europe since the start of the season (13.8).
Brazil bring in a strong squad, with excellent satellites to support Neymar. He just needs three more goals to overtake Pele as Brazil’s all-time great goalscorer.
That’s why Vn88 newspaper reported that the injury could once again hinder Neymar. This is really an obsession for Neymar. In 2014, Neymar dropped out of the tournament at home after a foul by Juan Zuniga. The strong hit to the ball caused the Brazilian player to injure his spine, even at risk of paralysis. By 2018, Neymar was injured just 3 weeks before the World Cup took place.
Being sensitive to injuries makes Neymar’s career not really breakthrough. However, Brazil is no longer relying too much on Neymar. Team-mates can replace Neymar to do well before the player can return to play.
Brazil is not worried about losing Neymar
Because Brazil has many quality attacking players. Neymar not playing is not a disaster with the team 5 times world champion. Vn88.cx in a quick interview in February forced coach Tite to remove Roberto Firmino from the list to Qatar. The 21-year-old young talent has relatively effective speed, determination and breakthrough ability. The proof is that he scored 5 goals, had 2 assists to help Arsenal to the top of the Premier League table.
Gabriel Jesus is also a quality option. He is a fast, wide-ranging player, very suitable for pressing on the opponent from the front line.
It is impossible not to mention Richarlison. Tottenham’s striker shone in the victory in the opening match. He is the number one striker of “Selecao” at the moment. Since making his debut for the national team in September 2018 until now, Richarlison has 19 goals on all fronts. No Brazilian player has had a better record this time around. The second goal against Serbia with an impromptu tackle is considered a masterpiece.
In fact, Neymar personally did not play as expected against Serbia. He was only scored 6.5 points (Whoscored), the player with the lowest score on the “Selecao” side, followed by goalkeeper Alisson (6.7 points).
At Copa America 2019, the tournament that Brazil won, Neymar did not participate. This is proof that Brazil is fine with Neymar not playing. According to Vn88 mobile, many Brazilian fans have malicious comments about Neymar.
Raphinha said: “Argentine fans see Leo Messi as a saint. Portuguese fans see Cristiano Ronaldo as a king. Brazilian fans are overjoyed when Neymar is injured. Even they. I hope he breaks his leg.”
