In the 2026 World Cup qualifier on Tuesday, Uruguay secured a 2-0 victory against Brazil, with Darwin Nunez and Nicolas de la Cruz finding the net. The match took a dramatic turn when Neymar suffered a concerning knee injury, forcing him to leave the field.

Nunez initiated the scoring with a splendid diving header in the 42nd minute, setting the stage for a challenging night for Brazil. Just two minutes later, Neymar encountered trouble while battling De la Cruz for the ball.

Neymar’s injury visibly distressed both players and fans, and he had to be stretchered off the field after receiving extensive medical attention.

The Brazil Football Association sources revealed that he had suffered a severe left knee sprain, prompting the need for further tests to assess potential ligament damage.

De la Cruz then increased the lead for the hosts with a close-range strike in the 77th minute, with Nunez playing a crucial role in the goal.

As a result of this win, Uruguay climbed to second place in the CONMEBOL standings, equalling Brazil and Venezuela with seven points each. Meanwhile, the leaders, Argentina, were set to face Peru on Tuesday.
