Neymar is enduring a tough year after being ruled out of the Copa America with an ankle ligament injury.
The Brazilian went down in the first half of his side’s 2-0 friendly win over Qatar on Wednesday.
“After suffering a sprain in his right ankle during last Wednesday’s game against Qatar, Neymar was evaluated and subjected to complementary imaging tests that confirmed ligament rupture in the ankle,” a statement on www.cbf.com read.
“Due to the seriousness of the injury, Neymar will not have the physical conditions and sufficient recovery time to participate in the Copa America Brasil 2019.”
With another in a long line of injuries over the past 12 months coupled by controversy off the pitch, Neymar is having a difficult time at the moment.
However, he still managed to score 16 goals in just 17 Ligue 1 games for Paris Saint-Germain this season and you can watch every one of them in the video below.
