Brazil dealt huge blow as Neymar CONFIRMS injury following Serbia win but insists he will play through the pain in Qatar

CROCKED Neymar insists he’ll return to play in pain after being ruled out of Brazil’s final two World Cup group games.

The PSG striker called it “one of the hardest moments of my career” after damaging his ankle ligaments in Thursday’s 2-0 win over Serbia.

Team doctors believe Neymar, 30, will be out for at least a week after he had to be replaced by Manchester United winger Antony late in the game.

But he roared from his heart in an Instagram post to reassure home fans he WILL be back in action in Qatar.

The 122-cap superstar, who has hit 75 international goals, posted: “The pride and love I feel wearing the shirt is inexplicable. 

“If God gave me the opportunity to choose a country to be born in, it would be BRAZIL.

“Nothing in my life was given or easy, I always had to chase after my dreams and my goals. Never wishing someone harm but helping those in need.

“Today has become one of the hardest moments of my career… and again in a World Cup.

“I have an injury yes, it’s annoying, it’s going to hurt but I’m sure I’ll have the chance to come back because I’ll do my best to help my country , my team-mates and myself.

“Long wait for the enemy to take me down like this? NEVER!


“I am the SON OF THE GOD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE and my FAITH is endless.”

Neymar’s 2014 World Cup was ended by a fractured vertebra when Colombia’s Juan Camilo Zuniga kneed him in the back during Brazil’s 2-1 quarter-final victory.

And amongst the ex-Barcelona hero’s other injuries was a nasty ankle injury that kept him out for several weeks last season.
