Brazil will find out the extent of Neymar’s ankle injury within the next 48 hours after the forward limped out of their 2-0 win over Serbia on Thursday night.

The five-time World Cup winners ran out comfortable winners thanks to Richarlison’s second-half double but the victory was marred by Neymar coming off injured with 10 minutes to go.

Neymar picked up an ankle problem following a challenge by Nikola Milenkovic and carried on for 10 minutes, before being withdrawn for Antony after going down off the ball.

The Brazilian had ice taped to the injured area and the 30-year-old looked in discomfort and had to be consoled by some members of the Selecao bench.
