Neymar out of Brazil’s next match

DOHA: Neymar will miss Brazil's next World Cup game against Switzerland after he suffered ankle ligament damage in his team's opening win against Serbia, the team doctor said on Friday, reports AFP.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was seen with a swollen ankle after being substituted during the 2-0 victory against Serbia on Thursday.

Rodrigo Lasmar, the doctor for the Brazilian football federation (CBF), said the 30-year-old had suffered "ligament damage".

Brazil right-back Danilo will also miss Monday's match against Switzerland with an ankle strain.
