Galtier Gives an Update on the Ankle Injury of Neymar

Christophe Galtier, the manager of PSG has given a positive update on the availability of Neymar for the team’s clash with Strasbourg on 28th December. Neymar has been dealing with an ankle injury that he suffered during World Cup 2022 with Brazil.

Brazil had been eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2022 at the quarterfinal stage after a defeat of 4-2 to Croatia on 9th December. After that, Neymar made his return to PSG and it appears like he is going to be available for the match with Strasbourg.

Galtier has confirmed this in the pre-match presser. Neymar had been in scintillating form as he headed to the World Cup 2022. He scored 15 goals and 12 assists in the 20 games he played. Neymar handled 2 goals and an assist in 3 outings during the World Cup. However, he failed to make the impact that he wanted to because of his ankle injury. The Parisians are now at the top of Ligue 1. They have a 5-point league over Lens in the second position after 15 games had been played.
Strasbourg is in the 19th position and has not been able to win a game in the last 5 league fixtures. Neymar scored the opener in regulation time in the World Cup match against Croatia before Bruno Petkovic equalized for Vatreni. Nevertheless, he wasn’t one of 4 players to step up and take the penalty for Selecao in the shootout.
Doubt had been cast over his future performance for his national team after he exited the tournament of the year. Nevertheless, according to reports he has been inspired by Messi’s victory in Qatar as Argentina lifted the trophy for the 3rd time in their history. He is going to be 34 when the next World Cup comes around but he will continue playing for Brazil.
