Brazil sounds positive with Neymar’s injury update at World Cup.might be available for Brazil’s match against Cameroon in the FIFA World Cup. Neymar Jr.’s potential availability for Brazil’s 2022 FIFA World Cup group-stage match against Cameroon on Friday has given the nation optimism (2 December). Even so, the forward for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will miss the World Cup match against Switzerland on November 28. However, if they lose to the Swiss, boss Tite might need him against the African country.
Brazil defeated Serbia 2-0 in their opening match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, with Richarlison scoring both goals in the second half. The lone letdown on their day came when Neymar was replaced in the 80th minute; it was later discovered he had an ankle sprain. Neymar was reportedly going to miss Brazil’s final two group-stage matches. However, according to Globo (h/t @BrasilEdition), he might be able to play against Cameroon.
In the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarterfinal against Colombia, the PSG attacker fractured his vertebra, preventing him from playing in the semi-final. Many people questioned whether the final score would have remained the same if Neymar had participated after the Selecao Canarinho was humiliated 7-1 by Germany. In the meantime, Tite might start Antony against the Swiss in place of the PSG playmaker. Antony was the guy who came on late against Serbia. Additionally, he is attacking the bench with Rodrygo, Gabriel Martinelli, and Gabriel Jesus.
Brazil’s 2022 FIFA World Cup champion remembers how it felt to wear Neymar’s No. 10 during the Olympics and to feel “like a King.” Brazil received the ideal start to their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign thanks to Richarlison’s brace. The Tottenham Hotspur player has a history of scoring for his country. He was the leading scorer at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo with 19 goals overall in 39 games (excluding Olympic appearances) for the senior Brazilian team.
He scored five goals throughout the match, helping Brazil keep the Olympic gold title. The former Everton forward recalled wearing the No. 10 shirt during that time in Tokyo by saying, “I was really thrilled, I found in the final that I was top scorer, my first time as top scorer.” And as I previously stated, when they gave me the number 10 shirt worn by Pele, Neymar, and Ronaldinho, I felt like a king since I concluded the season as the top scorer, just like fans want to see from the Brazil’s No. 10. I arrived (in Tokyo) feeling light and loose and played my best football, Richarlison continued. A dream came true, truly.
