Brazil superstar Neymar posts emotional message after World Cup injury blow

Brazil superstar Neymar says he is going through ‘one of the most difficult moments of his career’ as an ankle injury threatens his World Cup dream.

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

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was replaced in the 80th minute of Thursday’s 2-0 win over Serbia after a heavy tackle from Nikola Milenkovic.

Neymar looked emotional as he sat on the bench and pictures showed his right ankle severely swollen.

He wrote on Instagram: ‘The pride and love I feel wearing the shirt is inexplicable. If God gave me the opportunity to choose a country to be born in, it would be Brazil.

‘Nothing in my life was given or easy, I always had to chase after my dreams and my goals. Never wishing someone harm but helping those in need.

‘Today has become one of the most difficult moments of my career… and again in a World Cup.

‘I have an injury yes, it’s annoying, it’s going to hurt but I’m sure I’ll have a chance to come back.

‘I’ll do my best to help my country, my team-mates and myself.’
