Neymar will miss Brazil’s next World Cup match against Switzerland after suffering an ankle ligament injury in his side’s first win against Serbia, the team doctor said on Friday.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker was seen with a swollen ankle after being substituted in the 2-0 win over Serbia on Thursday.

Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said the 30-year-old suffered “ligament damage”.

Brazilian right-back Danilo will also miss Monday’s game against Switzerland with a sprained ankle.

“We won’t have these two players for our next match but they are continuing their treatment in order to recover in time for the rest of the competition,” the doctor said in a video broadcast by the CBF.
