Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star forward Neymar who is currently stranded in the centre of many controversies has suffered a major injury scare yet again during the friendly with Qatar at Mane Garrincha stadium on Wednesday. The 27-year-old young Brazilian footballer limped off the field in severe pain at 22nd minute of the game after injuring his right ankle. Later, the player broke into tears while the doctors evaluating his painful injury at the bench.


Neymar decided to participate in the match even after undergoing police investigation about his rape controversy. The player was allegedly accused of raping a woman in a Paris hotel though, the picture is still not clear that whether he is guilty or not. Currently, it is difficult to say if he will participate in Copa America 2019 or not.

Here’s watch the video of Neymar’s injury just eight days before Copa America 2019. 


Earlier, three months back, Neymar went to Qatar for a complete assessment of his foot injury which occurred during the time of French Cup 2019 where his PSG team won against Strasbourg on January 23. After recovering well from the right foot injury Neymar joined back the PSG squad in the finals of French Cup 2019 where his team lost the match against Stade Rennais by 5-6 on penalties.

The most expensive footballer of the world missed out many big tournaments of football due to a fractured metatarsal in his right foot. He didn’t participate in Champions League leg 16 match also previously in March 2019.
