Neymar suffers severe knee injury in Uruguay match


Brazil forward Neymar left their 2026 World Cup qualifier against Uruguay in tears on Tuesday after suffering what appeared to be a serious knee injury.

The 31-year-old went down after a tackle from behind by Nicolas de la Cruz in the 44th minute, holding his left leg in pain and calling for medical attention as his team mates looked on anxiously.

He left the pitch on a stretcher after receiving treatment for several minutes. Brazil FA sources said Neymar had sustained a severe left knee sprain and that he would undergo tests to determine if there was ligament damage.
