Neymar to miss two World Cup games

Neymar appeared to be in tears on the Brazil bench after being replaced against Serbia

Neymar has been ruled out of Brazil’s next two World Cup games after sustaining ligament damage in his right ankle, says their team doctor.

The 30-year-old was replaced in the 80th minute of Thursday’s 2-0 win over Serbia after a heavy tackle from Nikola Milenkovic.

Neymar sat with his face covered while receiving treatment and pictures showed his right ankle was heavily swollen.
