Brazil will find out the extent of Neymar’s ankle injury within the next 48 hours after the forward limped out of their 2-0 win over Serbia on Thursday night.
The five-time World Cup winners ran out comfortable winners thanks to Richarlison’s second-half double but the victory was marred by Neymar coming off injured with 10 minutes to go.
Neymar picked up an ankle problem following a challenge by Nikola Milenkovic and carried on for 11 minutes, before being withdrawn for Antony after going down off the ball.
The 30-year-old had ice taped to the injured area of his right ankle and looked in discomfort as he had to be consoled by some members of the Selecao bench.
