Brazil’s Neymar is winning everyone over this season with his goals and attitude for PSG. He’s also been injury-free after years of being plagued by ankle, hamstring and foot injuries.


Even though Neymar suffered a small cut in his right knee during Wednesday’s training session, Brazil coach Tite said he was expected to start against Ghana on Friday. Neymar’s work-rate for PSG has been exemplary. He’s fitter than for many years and scoring prolifically, with 11 in 11 games overall.
