Neymar, Danilo OUT, Alves, Jesus IN For Brazil At World Cup

Neymar Injured v Serbia

Brazilian duo Neymar and Danilo will miss remaining group games against Switzerland and Cameroon after sustaining injuries in Thursday's opening 2-0 victory over Serbia, the team's doctor said 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."

This means good news for Dani Alves who will be hungry to play for his country, with the injury of Danilo, he probably start in the right-back role for Brazil.

Neymar's injury could also mean good news to Gabriel Jesus as he is capable of playing off the back of a striker. Richarlison will remain the favoured No. 9 with his brace against Serbia.
