Neymar Ltd's trip to Milton Keynes has ended prematurely as he was forced to limp out of Brazil's friendly with Cameroon after just seven minutes of play.
The attacker suffered what appears to be a thigh or groin muscle injury, which may prove troubling for his obsequious employers, Paris Saint-Germain.
Here is the moment he suffered the injury:

These troubles have been further compounded by events in France, as Kylian M'bappe was forced off with an injury in a friendly against Uruguay. The striker hurt himself in a collision with goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. He immediately went off clutching his shoulder.
While PSG can afford to do without both in Ligue Un, they could need Neymar and M'bappe for their critical showdown with Liverpool at the Parc Des Princes next Wednesday evening.
If PSG lose that game, and Napoli pick up a win at home to Red Star Belgrade, then the Parisiens will suffer a humiliating exit before even the final round of group games have been played.
Six minutes into Brazil v Cameroon and Neymar is injured. Off with a thigh strain. Groans and jeers all round.
