Brazil could be without Neymar for the remainder of the World Cup group stage after he suffered an ankle injury in their opening win against Serbia on Thursday.
On Friday, the Brazilian FA (CBF) confirmed both Neymar and Danilo, the right-back who also injured his ankle in the same game, would miss Brazil’s next match against Switzerland on Monday.
