Neymar in pain with minor toe injury but manages a smile as he trains with Willian and Gabriel Jesus in Brazil


Neymar looked in fine spirits as he trained with the Brazil national squad in Teresopolis on Monday, but caused concern as he grimaced while tending to a wounded toe on the sidelines.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward has travelled to Brazil for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Chile despite the nation having already sealed their place in Russia next summer.
Head coach Tite is aiming to go out of the campaign on a high after calling up Neymar alongside other big hitters such as Chelsea star Willian and Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, both of whom trained as well.
Soon, Neymar, Jesus and the rest of the Brazil squad will be on their way to the noxious surroundings of La Paz, where they take on Bolivia in the world’s highest national stadium.
At 3,637 metres above sea level, Bolivia’s Estadio Hernando Siles needs a special exemption from FIFA to hold matches as the governing body has a ban on all other stadiums located 3,000 meters.
Usually, travelling teams tend to arrive for matches earlier in order to adapt to the lower levels of oxygen, but Brazil do not appear worried after storming their way through qualifying up to this point.
