Neymar won't be in peak form when Brazil kicks off its World Cup on June 17 against Sweden due to the fact he won't have played more than a few games for club and country since the injury.

And he posted a touching Instagram post ahead of him holding hands with Marquezine as he gets set for his op tomorrow.

Lasmar says Neymar will have surgery on Saturday in Belo Horizonte and will be out between 2 1/2 and 3 months.

"Internally, we speak with much clarity", said Emery.

Brazilian national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar and Gerard Saillant, who operated on Brazilian legend Ronaldo's knee in 2000, will also be present.

Following Trump's victory in the 2016 election, his daughter and her husband became part of the presidential administration. It's just as well; as Meyers points out, Kushner's new security clearance level sure doesn't sound like much of an asset.

His absence will be PSG's loss, as the injury rules him out of the March 6 UEFA Champions League round-of-16 game against Real Madrid, the quarterfinals and most likely the first leg of the semifinal, should his team advance that far.

A move to Old Trafford could be on the cards as the report says Neymar feels he needs to leave PSG and play in a more competitive league if he's to win the Ballon d'Or any time soon.

Newspapers featured close-up illustrations detailing Neymar's foot and ankle.

Staff at the hospital, a tall building with mirrored windows, were put on information lockdown, with a ban on using their cellphones anywhere near the star. Having Neymar back is priority number one.

Speaking to Brazilian media outlets upon his arrival here from Paris, Lasmar said he will operate on Saturday to fix the fractured fifth metatarsal in the 26-year-old's right foot in Brazil.

On Monday, the resolution gained 11 favorable votes at the 15-member Security Council but was halted by Russia's veto. A Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015, backing government forces fighting Iran-allied Houthi rebels.

The drama is a big personal setback for Neymar. But on Sunday he looked to be in tears as he was stretchered off the field at the Parc des Princes.

Star Brazilian striker Neymar runs the risk not to go for the upcoming world Cup in Russian Federation.

But even if Neymar gets back in time, he appears sure to miss two warm-up friendlies against Russian Federation and Germany in March.

Sweden are in World Cup Group F and face South Korea in their first match on 18 June in Nizhny Novgorod. This means he's not racing against time but against conventional soccer wisdom, which states players need a run of around seven to 10 games to reach maximum sharpness.

"I am very optimistic. When you think how exhausting the European season is, he could even arrive fresher than the others, both physically and emotionally", Nunes told AFP.

We expect to see at least three goals in this game, and we are backing over 2.5 goals in the game. Spurs are unbeaten in their last 13 home league games.
