Neymar injured his right ankle during Brazil’s World Cup win

LUSAIL, Qatar (AP) – Neymar sat crying on the bench and later left the stadium limping with a swollen right ankle after Brazil’s 2-0 win over Serbia at the World Cup. Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar says Neymar has sprained his ankle. Lasmar says: “There is no test scheduled at the moment but we will schedule it if necessary. He will be under surveillance. We’ll know more tomorrow.” Brazil coach Tite says he is “confident that Neymar will continue playing at the World Cup” but Lasmar says it’s too early to comment on the extent of the injury.
