12 minutes after the match began, Paris Saint Germain forward, Neymar limped off as Brazil had a draw with a Nigeria in a friendly in Singapore.
The 27-year-old touched the back of his left thigh as he left the pitch in a friendly match against Brazil. The PSG forward was immediately replaced by Philippe Coutinho.
In response to the injury, a team spokesman said Neymar “felt discomfort” and would be examined by PSG doctors once he gets back to France.
Hence, Neymar could be a doubt for the Champions League game against Club Bruges on 22nd October.
Nigeria took the lead after 35 minutes through Joe Aribo’s help. He found space in a packed penalty box to rifle in a low shot and grab his second goal in two international appearances.
Brazil equalized three minutes into the second half when Casemiro fired home from close range. This happened after he quickly reacted when Marquinhos’ header came back off the Woodwork.
Casemiro later smacked a header off the bar and Coutinho should have scored a cut back with five minutes remaining. However, despite the efforts, the scores stagnated at 1-1.
Since lifting the Copa America in July, Brazil has also drawn with Colombia and Senegal and lost to Peru.
