PSG confirm Neymar and Kylian Mbappe injuries ahead of Liverpool clash

PSG player Neymar off injured v Cameroon

Neymar was forced off with a groin injury after just eight minutes of Brazil's 1-0 victory over Cameroon in Milton Keynes on Tuesday.

The forward was labelled as an early doubt for next week's crunch Champions League clash with Liverpool but he believes the injury is not as serious as first feared.

The curse of the worldwide break may have struck for Paris Saint-Germain, with two of their key players suffering injuries in action on Tuesday.

Mbappe was withdrawn before halftime in France's 1-0 friendly win against Uruguay when the forward fell awkwardly on his right shoulder after a challenge by Uruguay goalkeeper Marin Campana.

"He felt discomfort", Lasmar said.

Both players underwent medical examinations with PSG on Wednesday and the French champions have confirmed Neymar sustained a "right adductor strain", while Mbappe suffered a "bruised right shoulder".

However, Liverpool will travel to the Parc des Princes on Wednesday 28 November, in what will likely be a crucial clash in the Champions League.

All four sides could still qualify for the knockout phase from Group C. Liverpool have the same number of points as leaders Napoli while PSG sit third, one point behind Liverpool and one point ahead of Red Star Belgrade.

Asked whether the Brazil worldwide would be available against Toulouse and Liverpool, Lasmar said: "It's important to wait approximately 24 hours more".

Neymar took to social media to confirm what his doctor said after the match.

Thanks to all who sent me messages wishing me a good recovery, I think it was nothing serious.

Everton forward Richarlison scored the only goal of the game just before half time to keep Brazil's ideal record after the World Cup and ensure they end the year on a high.

It took Brazil's record since the World Cup to six wins in six games with six clean sheets.
