Neymar will miss Brazil’s next World Cup game against Switzerland after damaging ankle ligaments in his team’s opening win over Serbia, the team doctor said on Friday.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward suffered a swollen ankle after being substituted during Thursday’s 2-0 win over Serbia.
Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said the 30-year-old suffered ligament damage.
Brazil right back Danilo will also miss Monday’s match against Switzerland with an ankle strain.
“We will not have these two players for our next match but they are continuing their treatment with the aim of recovering in time for the rest of the competition,” the doctor said in a video released by the CBF.
