DOHA, Qatar (AP) Brazil star Neymar underwent tests and was receiving treatment at the team's hotel Friday after injuring his right ankle in the 2-0 defeat of Serbia in their World Cup opener. The team did not give any detail on the extent of his injury.

Neymar sprained his ankle in the second half of a bruising match against Serbia on Thursday. He was in tears while sitting on the bench and after the match limped off the field on his way to the locker room.

Difficult game, but it was important to win, Neymar said on his social media accounts not long after he left Lusail Stadium without talking to the media. Congratulations team, first step taken. Six more to go.

In an Instagram story after the match, Neymar posted a text that mentioned the need to have faith.

Brazil coach Tite had already expressed optimism about Neymar's condition.
