Neymar joins teammates to watch Brazil’s game at World Cup


AP Sports Writer

LUSAIL, Qatar (AP) — Injured forward Neymar was at Lusail Stadium to watch Brazil’s 1-0 loss to Cameroon at the World Cup. He was expected to start training with the ball again on Saturday. It was the first time Neymar joined his teammates at a match since injuring his right ankle last week in Brazil’s opener against Serbia. Neymar wasn’t limping as he got off the team’s bus at the stadium and appeared to be in good spirits. He talked to teammates as they warmed up on the field and even played with the ball by the sideline. Team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar sounded optimistic about Neymar’s recovery after the match. But Lasmar said it was too soon to know if he would be available for Monday’s game against South Korea.
