Getting injured is his habit. A few days ago, Neymar, the poster boy of Brazil, was wearing the jersey of Al Hilal and Brazil after recovering from injury. But that journey did not last long. He got injured again. Neymar left the field on a stretcher after suffering an injury in the first half of the World Cup qualifying match against Uruguay on Wednesday. Neymar clashed with opponent Nicolas de la Cruz during the 44th minute of the match. After the collision, Neymar lay on the ground holding his knees with both hands. The physio in the field immediately rushed. After first aid, Neymar left the field on a stretcher and was taken to hospital for tests. There, doctors confirmed that his ligaments were damaged.
Brazil’s football federation (CBF) said in a statement on Wednesday that Neymar has injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. So he needs surgery. However, the date of the surgery has not been fixed yet.
A few months ago, Neymar joined the Saudi club Al Hilal after being transferred from PSG for 90 million euros. So Neymar’s injury is a cause of concern for Brazil as well as his club Al Hilal. For this reason, the doctors of the Al Hilal club are in regular contact with the doctors of the Brazilian national team, according to the Brazilian Football Federation.
It is believed that Neymar may be out of the field for about eight months due to this injury. As a result, this star footballer will not be seen in the match against Argentina in the World Cup qualifiers.
