Neymar returns to Training Ahead of Costa Rica Clash

Brazil forward Neymar returned to full training on Wednesday, after footage emerged of him limping away from the Tuesday afternoon session with a sore foot.

Neymar broke his metatarsal back in February but recovered in time for the tournament. However, he left Tuesday’s session after hobbling his way through a simple passing drill.

He appeared to have trouble with the same foot that he broke three months ago. Neymar was fouled ten times during Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Switzerland.

But the PSG man took part in full training on Wednesday and ought to be fit enough to start Friday’s Group E clash with Costa Rica in St. Petersburg.

His teammate Philippe Coutinho played down the severity of the injury in his Tuesday press conference.

“I saw the same thing you saw. I haven't talked to him. It happened almost at the end of practice. I think he felt something but that's normal."
