Brazil struggle to beat Venezuela without Neymar

Brazil struggle to beat Venezuela without Neymar”

PSG star Neymar Jr. has been ruled out of Brazil's World Cup qualifier clash against Uruguay as he sustained a groin injury will playing for his French club in the Champions League.

Roberto Firmino scored his third goal in as many matches as Brazil beat Venezuela 1-0 in their 2022 World Cup qualifier here on Friday.

That news will be welcomed by those back at Parc des Princes, with PSG boss Thomas Tuchel having queried Brazil's decision to select Neymar when he was clearly not ready to play.

Neymar's absence will be a huge blow to injury-plagued Brazil as they already lost five players for the two matches, including injured midfielders Philippe Coutinho and Fabinho, and defender Rodrigo Caio.

He had earlier complained about a leg issue, which ruled him out of the first game of the double-header but Brazilian coach Tite still called him up, in hopes that he could recover in time to face the daunting trip to Montevideo to face arch-rivals Uruguay. We can not do anything.

"Today, when we arrived in Sao Paulo, we already had a scheduled ultrasound exam to follow the response of the healing of his injury", Lasmar said. It's the truth. We have confidence in these people who are responsible for the national teams. How will Brazil cope with the Neymar injury?

Brazil have won both of their two fixtures so far in the qualifying campaign, with Neymar hitting a hat-trick last time out against Peru. But Flamengo striker Pedro has been included in Tite's plans to help provide attacking options, alongside Richarlison and Firmino.
