Exiting the field in tears, Neymar faced an apparent knee injury at the close of the first half during Brazil’s World Cup qualifying match against Uruguay on Tuesday.

In the 44th minute at the Centenario Stadium, the 31-year-old striker stumbled during a run, prompting players from both teams to surround him as he clutched his left knee. Neymar was subsequently carried off on a stretcher, hands on his face, and Richarlison replaced him.

Despite the incident, Brazil’s medical team provided no immediate update on Neymar’s condition. The Al Hilal player faced criticism for a subpar performance in the recent 1-1 draw between Brazil and Venezuela.

Having made his national team debut in 2010, Neymar boasts 79 goals in 128 appearances for Brazil. Stay updated with the latest news by subscribing to Hindustan Times on WhatsApp Channels.
