Neymar working hard to recover from foot injury

Vastavam web: Neymar is working hard to recover from the foot injury that sidelined him in February and will be back in action by this summer’s World Cup, the Brazil team doctor who operated on him promised.”Neymar is recovering the best way possible,” Rodrigo Lasmar told GloboEsporte.”He is working hard and the expectation is that he will arrive well-prepared so he can take part in excellent World Cup training,” Lasmar said.That pretty much puts a lid on his season with Paris Saint-Germain — whose last fixture is scheduled against Caen on May 19 — but he remains on track to play in the World Cup in Russia from June 14 to July 15.

Brazil’s players will attend a training camp from May 21 to 27 in Teresopolis, but Lasmar acknowledged that Neymar’s time off the pitch means he’ll at first need a tailored fitness program in the run-up to the World Cup.The 26-year-old forward — the most expensive player in history — broke a bone in his right foot on February 26 during his team’s 3-0 rinsing of Marseille.
