Brazilians hold their breath as star player Neymar limped off the training pitch today because of pain in his right ankle.
ESPN reports, the Brazilian football confederation says the injury is not serious, adding Neymar left as a precaution and would be back in training tomorrow.
The federation says Neymar has been in pain since the team’s 1-1 draw against Switzerland when he was consistently fouled.
Neymar was playing keep-away with a few other players when he suddenly left the training session in Sochi. He limped as he walked away from the field toward the dressing room, accompanied by a team doctor.
Brazil meets Costa Rica at 12am Saturday.
