Brazil FA: Neymar will have surgery following an ACL and meniscus fracture.

18 October (Reuters) The anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus of Neymar’s left knee were torn during a World Cup qualifying match against Uruguay; the injury is anticipated to sideline the striker for many months. According to the Brazilian Football Association, Neymar will have surgery.

The 31-year-old fell to the ground following a collision with Nicolas de la Cruz of Uruguay in the 44th minute of Tuesday’s 2-0 loss for Brazil. He immediately sought medical assistance as his teammates anxiously watched.

After being treated for a while and being taken off the pitch on a stretcher, Neymar, who signed with the Saudi Arabian team Al-Hill in August, wept. An MRI exam on Wednesday confirmed the injuries.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) stated: “The striker will have surgery to correct the injuries; a date has not yet been established.”

Al Hilal and the medical staff of the Brazilian national team are in close communication and working together to help the player recuperate.

Neymar expressed disappointment at being side-lined with a new ailment so soon after overcoming an ankle procedure.

Prior to leaving Paris Saint-Germain to accept a two-year contract with Al-Hill, where he only appeared in five games this season, he underwent surgery on his right ankle earlier this year. It took him months to recuperate.

He posted on Instagram, saying, “This is such a horrible moment, the worst.” ” I know I’m resilient, but this time I’ll depend even more on my loved ones and friends.

Imagine having to go through everything again after recovering for four months after an accident and surgery.

Injury problems have hampered Neymar’s career. After sustaining a right foot injury, he played for Paris Saint-Germain for three extended periods of time.

He had a back injury during the 2014 World Cup quarterfinal victory over Colombia, keeping him from playing in the 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany.

Injury setbacks hindered his World Cup victory hopes in 2018. Neymar injured his right ankle earlier that year, resulting in damage to his foot’s fifth metatarsal.

He was never entirely healthy, as he played for Brazil in Russia despite the agony until they lost to Belgium in the quarterfinals. At the conclusion of the domestic season in 2017–18, he missed 16 games for PSG.

Similar injuries were sustained by the attacker in 2019, 2021, and the World Cup in Qatar last year.

Al-Hill would suffer a severe setback as a result of the most recent injury; the club allegedly paid $95 million ($90 million) for the attacker.

The team is unbeaten in the Saudi Pro League and has a one-point advantage. After two games, they are also in first place in their AFC Champions League group.
