Neymar, with a sore thigh, will not play against Argentina

The star Neymar will not play on Tuesday the South American classic between Argentina and Brazil for the regional qualifier for the Qatar-2022 World Cup due to meeting "pains" on one thigh, the Brazilian Federation (CBF) reported on Monday.

"After training this morning, Neymar complained of pain in the adductors and the left thigh (…) Due to the fact that complementary tests could not be carried out, the technical staff decided to preserve the player, who will not travel with the delegation ( Brazilian) to San Juan", western Argentina, to play the South American classic for the fourteenth date of the World Cup, explained the CBF.

If studies confirm an injury, the Paris St. Germain player could also miss Saturday’s game against Nantes for the French league and, above all, that of November 24 for the European Champions League against Manchester City .

Neymar, 29, has lived with various injuries since joining PSG for the 2017-2018 season.

Nor could he play with the Seleçao the 2019 Copa América, which Brazil won at home, due to an ankle injury suffered days before the start of the continental tournament in a friendly match.

Brazil, which achieved its qualification last Thursday six dates before the World Cup in Qatar-2022, leads the South American qualifier undefeated with 34 points from 12 games, with eleven victories and one draw.

Argentina escorts him with 28 units.

Both teams have their match on the sixth date suspended, last September in Sao Paulo, due to invasion of the playing field by Brazilian health authorities shortly after the start of the game. FIFA has yet to make a decision on the incident.
