Neymar limps out of Brazil training with pain in ankle

Neymar has limped out of Brazil's training session at the World Cup because of pain in his right ankle.

The news is a huge concern for Brazil head coach Tite, given that Neymar has only just returned from a broken foot after suffering a fractured metatarsal while playing for PSG in the Champions League last February. He felt some pain and went to the physiotherapy, and tomorrow he will train normally. Although Rodrigo Lamer said Neymar wouldn't receive any special treatment as he was "fully fit", the player was only able to complete a small part of the session.

Brazil continued the trend of tournament favourites underperforming as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland in their FIFAWorld Cup 2018 Group E opener in Rostov.

"Neymar complained of ankle pains, due to the number of fouls he suffered [in the match] against Switzerland".

Another said: "Why is Neymar always injured during World Cup?"

Willian heads into World Cup in Russian Federation having scored 13 goals and provided 12 assists for Chelsea last season, helping the Blues to the FA Cup.

PSG's star forward arrived in Russian Federation after several months recovering from a fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot, an injury picked up in February.

Brazil's Neymar, right, leaves a training session because of pain in his right ankle. "When he is on the field he helps us a lot".

And Carlos, who won the World Cup with Brazil back in 2002, believes Willian is one of the best players in this year's competition. This game is important and we're looking for three points.
