Neymar, Brazil’s injured star forward, will miss Monday’s World Cup match against Switzerland as Cristiano Ronaldo seeks to lead Portugal into the round of 16 in Qatar.

With a victory over the Swiss, five-time world champions Brazil might advance to the knockout round, depending on the results of Serbia’s and Cameroon’s matchup earlier in the day.

Brazil won 2-0 over Serbia in Group G to start their campaign in Qatar, but Neymar hobbled off due to an ankle sprain.

The Brazilian center-back Marquinhos remarked, “At the moment it was difficult for him and after the game, he was upset which I believe is normal given how much he has dreamed of this.”

He is currently undergoing physiotherapy 24 hours a day, which demonstrates how much he wants to be with us again after the testing and treatment.
