Injured Neymar on track to be back for World Cup

Injured Neymar on track to be back for World Cup”

Last week Neymar identified May 17 as a target date to return to training, with Brazil's Russian Federation 2018 opener against Switzerland coming exactly a month later in Rostov.

"The expectation is for Neymar to arrive well prepared for the World Cup", Lasmar told GloboEsporte on Friday.

Neymar had surgery on his broken right foot on March 3, and is now recovering at his home in Mangaratiba, near Rio de Janeiro. That would all but rule him out for the rest of the season for Paris Saint-Germain, who will play their last match against Caen on May 19.

"We need to improve the physical condition because it is probably low".

Rodrigo Lasmar, who performed surgery to fix a cracked fifth metatarsal in Neymar's right foot in March, said the Paris Saint-Germain forward would be given a customized fitness program ahead of the June 14-July 15 tournament. "Players returning from injury deserve an individual assessment to draw up the best possible strategy for them", Lasmar added.

But optimistic, he said last week he hoped to bounce back to being even better than before in a bid to earn another star as a world champion with the Brazilian men's national team.
