Neymar jr and Danilo will miss Brazil’s final two group games due to ankle injuries.

The duo sustained ankle injuries in their 2-0 victory over Serbia on Thursday evening.

The development was confirmed by the Brazilian team doctor on Friday

“Neymar and Danilo went through a MRI on Friday afternoon and we found ligament damage in the ankle of both of them,” he told reporters. “They will miss the next game for sure and we will be cautious as they will undergo treatment in order to try to get them in shape so they can play again in the World Cup.” Said the National team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar

Brazil will face Switzerland in their next group stage clash on Monday before concluding their campaign against Cameroon on Friday. Despite the two absences, Brazil remain strong favourites to advance as group winners and particularly after their opening day victory.
