Lusail, Qatar (Qatar), November 25: Brazil's fitness was slammed after his team's 2-0 win over Serbia in their FIFA World Cup opener.In a post-match press conference, Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar joined Tite and confirmed that the star player Neymar had an ankle injury and that he would have a scan.We began the therapy on the bench immediately after he was shocked by the injury he sustained on the Serbian player's knee.In a statement published by Skysports, Lasmar said he continued with the therapy.We will have a new report tomorrow.We need to wait and see what happens, but we can't make any premature remarks about his progress.We have to wait.He stayed on the field 11 minutes after his injury, until it got to the point where he couldn't play again, he said. He stayed on the field for a while, but he wanted to serve the team.Brazil manager Tite said it's incredible that he can bear this pain while the team is playing.The five-time World Cup winners cruised to a comfortable victory thanks to Richarlisons' second-half double goal, but Neymars' injury substitution with 10 minutes remaining stained the victory.Neymar, 30, had an ankle injury and played for ten minutes before being replaced by Antony after falling off the ball. It was impossible to think that Brazil had been so brutal in defeating their opponents by the time the match was over.Serbia had the openings when they were looking for a goal, but Richarlison took them to the Lusail Stadium in Qatar with an incredible turn-and-shot goal that sailed past the Serbia goalkeeper to double the lead.Raphinha's remarkable play more than justified Brazils decision to sign him over Arsenals Gabriel Jesus as their striker.As Tites players attempted to break down a tenacious Serbian team, Raphinha missed opportunities to score the game-winning goal either side of halftime, shooting tamely on both occasions. Brazil played well defensively as they extended their 20-game streak of perfect World Cup starting games.Despite the fact that the five-time champions will face tougher challenges in this round, this one proved to be a promising start.
