It is now a whole country that retains its breath, before knowing the unavailability duration of the technical leader in Seleçao.

Facing Serbia, it was his teammate Thiago Silva who came to take his shoe to better see the extent of the damage. And it is a bottling Neymar and with an inflated ankle that left the Lusail stadium.

He returned to the bench, before hiding his face with his jersey. Several Brazilian media also said that the player was in tears on the field. What is certain is that the player finished the meeting seated, and head down, the face buried under his yellow tunic.

an action that undoubtedly woke up the old demons of the quarter-final of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil- against Colombia, during which “Ney” left the Castelão Stade de Fortaleza stadium in tears. Victim of an ugly blow from his opponent Camilo Zuniga in the lower back, he then said goodbye to competition and his dreams of coronation at home.

Everything was fine for the five -time world champion, largely dominating against Serbia. And even if the South Americans only forced the decision in the second period thanks to a double of the striker Richarlison (62 e and 73 e ) the troops of the coach Tite have never been worried.

Deprived of their Turin duo Filip Kostic-Dusan Vlahovic, left on the bench, the Serbs have shown too much tenderness, and clumsiness on the offensive level. The addition could have been much more salty, without the six stops made by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

Despite some poorly negotiated shares. Neymar appeared very legs, author of rides which he alone has the secret. He touched 81 balloons, the third best total of the game, and pulled three times to the goal.

In the running to break the Pelé’s record if he reached the three goals during this World Cup, the confirmed injury worries a whole country. Brazil can take a big step towards the knockout stages in the event of a victory against Switzerland on November 28. With or without Neymar.
