Why did Neymar leave before the end of the game against Venezuela?

Neymar could not be from Brazil's game against Venezuela, and beyond his team's victory, he took all eyes when he retired before the end of the game.


The duel between the extremes left enough to talk about what happened in Caracas, for the first of the three dates of the South American Qualifiers in October. It is that Venezuela, in the last place of the table, received the leader Brazil, who did not lose any game.

Without Neymar, suspended due to the accumulation of yellows, nor Casemiro, who was left out due to a wisdom tooth, Tite managed to get the three points. In this way, and despite suffering a large part of the match, he managed to beat his rival 3 to 1, and maintain first place in the standings.

It was not the first time that Brazil had to do without the Paris Saint-Germain striker. He had already been left out of the elimination date of November of last year, due to injury. However, every time Neymar entered the field he was a determining figure for the team led by Tite. In six games played, he has scored six goals and provided five assists.

The truth is that the Brazilian National Team is ready to once again have its highest figure, in the match against Colombia, this Sunday, at the Roberto Meléndez stadium, in Barranquilla. However, despite not having played, he caught all eyes, when 5 minutes from the end, he withdrew from the stadium. The truth is that Brazil dominated their rival, who was winning 2 to 1, and everything indicates that he went to the locker room, to celebrate the victory with his teammates.
