Neymar sparks injury fears as he limps out of Brazil training

Neymar sparks injury fears as he limps out of Brazil training

Brazil star Neymar will make his World Cup bow on Sunday as the five-time champions kick off quest for redemption while holders Germany launch their bid for back-to-back titles.

Neymar suffered the lower-leg injury in Brazil's game against Switzerland on Sunday.

Neymar returned to Brazil's training after sustaining an injury during Tuesday's training session.

Argentina, who were held to a 1-1 draw by tiny Iceland, and Brazil, who shared the spoils with Switzerland, both came up against teams happy to sacrifice attacking intent in favour of rigid defensive organisation and Herculean levels of industry.

"He had a knock, but I think it was the first time in three-and-a-half months he played 90 minutes", said Tite.

Cavaliers want to keop Kevin Love next season
CLEVELAND- LeBron James can opt out of the previous year of his contract with the Cavaliers and leave Cleveland for a second time. You can make the case that going after rings, namely with the hope that he'd beat the Warriors to get them, is a bad idea.

Folha de Sao Paulo, an influential newspaper in Brazil, said the performance of the Brazilian team, led by coach Tite, was "off", and another newspaper, Estado de Sao Paulo, indicated that the team's performance in the 2018 World Cup was "below expectations".

Lasmar said on Tuesday that Neymar, who was fouled 10 times in the draw, was expected to return to training on Wednesday in preparation for the Group E game against Costa Rica in St. Petersburg on Friday. He was visibly in pain after he tried to intercept a ball with his right foot while at the centre of the keep-away circle.

Brazil are the most in-form side going into the tournament with 17 wins in 21 games.

"As soon as he felt the pain he went to the physio". And in the national team's latest training session, things weren't looking so well. Players from both teams rushed toward the scrum but it was quickly diffused. "We wanted to win, but this draw could help too in the future", Marcelo was quoted by the press service of Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Pressed to discuss the impact of Neymar possibly missing Brazil's next match, Coutinho spoke like a player confident the Paris Saint-Germain superstar will be fit to face Costa Rica. "The first 40 minutes were tough for us, and at halftime I told the players to stay cool and press forward". He was on the pitch today, but as the above video showed, he did not look very good.
