Brazil star Neymar and team mate Danilo are doubtful for the rest of their World Cup group games after he suffered an ankle injury in their opening win against Serbia on Thursday. Neymar’s injury came after the Paris Saint-Germain forward was repeatedly fouled during Brazil’s 2-0 victory, before being replaced in tears in the 80th minute. “Neymar and Danilo started treatment yesterday immediately after the game,” Brazil doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said in a video published on Friday. “This morning they were re-evaluated. “The tests showed a lateral ligament injury on Neymar’s right ankle, along with a small bone edema and a medial ligament injury on Danilo’s left ankle. The players are still undergoing treatment. “We can already say that we will not have the two players for the next game but they remain in treatment with our goal of trying to get them back in time for this competition.”
