Neymar Returns to Game Time with 2 Goals

According to Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier, Neymar returned from the World Cup "in pain" and still lacks "fluidity." Neymar put in an impressive performance on Monday night, although Kylian Mbappe stole the show with five goals in PSG's dominant 7-0 victory over Pays de Cassel in the French Cup. He was used by Galtier in the number 10 spot, and he broke open the defense a few times.

He ended the night with one goal and two assists. But Galtier said after the game that the Brazilian has bruised ankles and hasn't fully recovered from his World Cup duty in Qatar. At Worlds, he had some minor bruises on his ankles, which have been treated. He was still in pain when he returned. He puts in a lot of work. "In the game, he has not regained all of his fluidity," the PSG manager told reporters.

After Neymar's explosive first-half performance against Pays de Cassel, Galtier went on to admit that he warned him about a possible red card. He stated, "I spoke to Neymar at halftime to ensure that he would be more composed in the second half." They frequently interacted and sought one another out. They were successful in a few interesting ways. They needed to play and replay together, in my opinion."

When PSG plays Reims in Ligue 1 on Sunday, the Brazilian international will want to be at his best. This can prove to be a stern test for the Brazillian star after his recent performance. Fans and supporters are expecting more from Neymar for PSG after a disappointing World Cup campaign for the star from Brazil. Brazil was knocked out shockingly by Croatia in their quarter-final match with Neymar scoring the first goal of the match in extra time.
