Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Brazil sweating on Neymar World Cup fitness”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Brazil began their World Cup campaign in Qatar with a victory against Serbia which included an early contender for goal of the tournament from Richarlison, but were left with questions over the fitness of Neymar after he sustained an ankle injury.

Chasing a sixth World Cup title, Brazil were particularly impressive for the second half of their 2-0 win against the Serbs at the Lusail Stadium on Thursday night.

Two goals from Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison – including an acrobatic second strike – were enough to give them the points, although Neymar’s exit 11 minutes from full time took some of the shine off the result.

The star was seen hobbling after a tackle from Serbia’s Nikola Milenkovic, and appeared emotional as he was consoled by teammates on the bench.

Images also showed swelling to Neymar’s ankle, fueling fears over his fitness for the remainder of the tournament.
