Brazil superstar Neymar sprained his right ankle in his sides opening World Cup match a 2-0 win over Serbia on Thursday, Brazilian team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar confirmed last night in a post-game press conference.

Lasmar said that the team had already begun treating Neymar and would have more clarity in 24 to 48 hours.

It was a direct trauma where the knee of a Serbian player made a movement that caused the sprain, Lasmar added.
