 Brazil's doctor reveals Neymar's position on participating in South Korea


Brazil's national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar confirmed after last night's 1-0 defeat by Cameroon that defender Danilo showed positive signs of recovering from an ankle injury while Neymar raced against time to regain fitness ahead of the World Cup round of 16 against South Korea.

Both Danilo and Neymar suffered ankle injuries during Brazil's 2-0 victory over Serbia in the opening match of Group G, which kept them from winning 1-0 against Switzerland and surprisingly losing to Cameroon with the same result.
Alex Sandro picked up a thigh injury against Switzerland while Alex Telles and Gabriel Jesus could join the injured list after complaining of soreness following the Cameroon game last night, with coach Tite fielding a line-up of substitutes.

"With regard to Neymar and Alex Sandro, we believe we have plenty of time and there is a possibility for them to participate," Lasmar told reporters, when asked about the readiness of the injured to participate in the round of 16 match next Monday.

"Let's see how they are. They haven't started training with the ball yet and that's something they will do tomorrow (today Saturday). It will be important to see how they respond to this new style, and from that we will call them up.
“Danilo has developed very positively and today he trained very hard with the ball and adapted very positively. We expect him today to be able to train normally with his team mates.

"Let's see what happens and if all goes well we have very high expectations that he will be available for the next game."

The Brazilian team doctor added that Telles and Jesus will undergo tests today.

He said, "Alex Telles complains of pain in his right knee after suffering a bruise. His condition was evaluated in the dressing room and today he will undergo an MRI scan so that we can assess his condition.
“Gabriel Jesus complained after the match of pain in his right knee, and after the evaluation, we requested an X-ray today.”

Despite losing to Cameroon, the first African team to defeat Brazil in the World Cup, coach Tite's team finished top of Group G, on goal difference from Switzerland, each with six points.

Brazil is seeking to win its sixth World Cup title in Qatar.
