Brazil international and PSG player, Neymar told that under the current treatment, he believed that he would be fit enough to join Brazil national team for 2018 World Cup in Russia. He also said that if everything goes according to plan, he would join the Brazil training ground on May 17th.
The PSG forward suffered from a broken metatarsal bone and was immediately sent back to Brazil to undergo a surgery and treatment. As a critical part of Brazil national team in the World Cup, the Brazil manager believes Neymar’s treatment is crucial to bring him back to the field and earn the trophy for their country.
Brazil will play their opening fixture in the World Cup against Switzerland team on June 17th, 2018. Until this match, Neymar would only have around 1 month. It may be short, but they don’t have any option and if Neymar still wants to play at the World Cup, he must be sure that 1 month is enough for him to get all his strength back.
The 26-year-old forward soon became the most expensive footballer in football history after he left Barcelona last August and joined PSG. Since then, he has scored more than 23 goals for the French side and had 16 assists.
With his final examination takes place on May 17th, he believes that he would be fit enough to join the Brazil team training ground. Until then, he should stay at Sao Paolo where the treatment takes place.
His last examination took place last week and so far, the result showed good progress. It means Neymar is getting close to the end of the treatment. However, since his injury broke his bone, he should be very careful as to not giving stress to his leg, more than he can bear.
The doctors and medical staff are working very hard to make sure he will return to the field as soon as possible. Their priority right now is getting him ready for the World Cup and then PSG. Without him on their side, the French side has been going through every game with so many problems. Everyone has been waiting for him for the sake of Brazil and PSG. However, for now, his top priority is the World Cup. He has been waiting for this time for 4 years and there is no elite player like him who could easily ignore the offer to play at the world’s most famous football match.
With him on their side, the Brazil national team might have a big chance to win the trophy and continue their history of winning the World Cup. So far, they have won the title for 5 times.
However, they do realize that winning this year’s World Cup will not be easy as they will fight against another favorite candidate, Germany. It was one of the worst team they could expect, the one who beat them in their last attempt to claim the title. Brazil may have talented players to counter Germany, but without Neymar, things will get difficult for them, if not impossible, to get the title this year.
