Neymar will miss Brazil's next World Cup game against Switzerland on Monday after he suffered ankle ligament damage in his country's opening win against Serbia, the team doctor said on Friday.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was seen with a swollen ankle after being substituted during the 2-0 win against Serbia and doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said in a video he had suffered "lateral ligament damage".
