JUST IN: Fresh Injury Scare For Neymar
There are fears of a fresh injury crisis for Brazilian superstar Neymar.
It was gathered Neymar left Brazil training on Tuesday after just 15 minutes with a right ankle injury.
The Brazil team doctor said it is related to a foul he suffered against Switzerland and not his recently broken right foot.
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.
Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Neymar left as a precaution after feeling soreness while jogging.
"What we can do is to calm down," Lasmar said. "A shorter workout was planned for the starters today, they're still in a regenerative process. Neymar trained a little, felt the pain, returned to physical therapy and tomorrow trains normally."
A day earlier, the forward had skipped training, one day after Sunday's 1-1 draw against Switzerland -- a game in which he was fouled 10 times, the most of any player in the competition in 20 years.
