After suffering injuries during their World Cup group stage opener, Neymar has been ruled out of the remaining group stages.

The Selecao defeated Serbia 2-0 on Thursday night to kick off their Group G campaign.

It appeared as though they might be left disappointed, but two goals from Tottenham forward Richarlison, one of which featured a spectacular bicycle kick, ensured Tite’s team started the game on top.

Even though Brazil’s Neymar was substituted in the 80th minute of the match after a heavy collision with Nikola Milenkovic, there were unsettling moments.

The Paris Saint-Germain player was subsequently captured on camera sobbing on the bench. Pictures of his swollen ankle soon started to go viral on social media as well.

Meanwhile, Danilo, also suffered an ankle injury in the match against Serbia.

Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte now outlines how both players are now set to sit out the next two games for the South American giants.

They’ll both aim to recover from their respective knocks in time to be fit for the knockout clashes.

Brazil will face Switzerland in their next group stage clash on Monday before concluding their campaign against Cameroon on Friday.

Despite the two absences, Brazil remain strong favourites to advance as group winners and particularly after their opening day victory.
