FIFA World Cup: Brazil sweat on battered Neymar ahead of Colombia clash
Brazil were left to count the cost of Saturday’s World Cup Last-16 victory against Chile as their star striker Neymar suffered a thigh knock during the game
Belo Horizonte: Brazil were left to count the cost of Saturday’s World Cup Last-16 victory over victory as Neymar suffered a thigh knock.
“We need to evaluate it but we should have three, four or five days to try and make sure he can play the next game,” said Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari of Neymar.
Neymar took a heavy knock to the thigh after a crunching challenge from Chilean Charles Aranguiz with the match just four minutes old.
“I don’t understand how you can do that and not be booked,” added Felipe Scolari.
