Neymar Recovering Well From Spine Injury

neymar-injuredBRAZIL forward Neymar is recovering  “very well” from the fractured vertebra injury which ended his 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign.

Medical staff from his club side Barcelona visited the 22-year-old at his home in Brazil to check on the problem and the player’s recovery.

“The injury is progressing very well,” said a statement from the Spanish club. “From 5 August the player will continue his treatment and the final stage of his recovery in Barcelona.”

Neymar suffered the injury after Juan Zuniga’s challenge in a 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia. He missed his country’s semi-final against Germany and he was sorely missed as the Selecao were thumped 7-1.

Neymar has scored four goals at the FIFA World Cup and his absence is a huge blow to Scolari’s men, who have struggled in the attacking third. — BBC
