The Brazil national side have been handed a fresh injury concern in their World Cup campaign as their star player Neymar limped out of training on Tuesday.

On Sunday, Brazil drew 1-1 with Switzerland, with Neymar playing the whole match for the first time having been sidelined for nearly three months with a foot injury, which required surgery.

"As soon as he felt the pain he went to the physio", said Vinicius Rodrigues. For Neymar or any other player for Brazil, the pressure is always there, this is expected.

The 25-year-old missed an outdoor training session on Monday after feeling pain from Brazil's opening match against Switzerland in which he picked up a knock after being repeatedly fouled.

The Paris St Germain forward was subdued in the match and unrecognizable from the man who became the world's most expensive footballer when he left Barcelona last August to join the French champions.

Neymar left the Rostov Arena limping but told media that there was nothing to worry about, and his appearance in training appeared to allay any fears that he had suffered yet another heartbreaking injury at a World Cup following his 2014 anguish.

Willian heads into World Cup in Russian Federation having scored 13 goals and provided 12 assists for Chelsea last season, helping the Blues to the FA Cup. "Since today was only a recovery session for the starters, and he complained about pain, he ended going to rehabilitation". Team doctor, Rodrigo Lasmar, said he will have physical therapy on Tuesday and Wednesday and then also train on Wednesday afternoon. But after not overly impressing in the team's World Cup debut against Switzerland, there has been a further set back.

"The problem is that Neymar forgot to play as a team and kept the ball", he explained.
