However, the PSG medical staff have confirmed that it is more than an ankle sprain and rued him out of partaking in the Champions League match against Real Madrid next week and Brazil’s friendly matches in March.

According to the medical report on the club website, Neymar suffered a fracture to his fifth metatarsal, the long bone on the outside of the foot that connects to the little toe.

“Complementary examinations performed this day (ultrasound and CT) confirmed antero external sprain of the right ankle but also the associated existence of a fissure of the fifth metatarsal,” the report read.

The injury means Neymar would be running against time to be fit in time to be selected in the Brazil team to the World Cup in Russia.
