The Brazilian soccer confederation said the injury was not serious, adding Neymar left as a precaution and would be back in training on Wednesday. He tried to continue playing but a few moments later made a decision to leave, kicking a ball away with his left foot before limping away. "He complained of pain and so he went to physio and he will train normally tomorrow".
Brazil had a closed practice session Wednesday, two days before its game against Costa Rica in St. Petersburg, but the federation posted photos and a video of Neymar in action in training with the rest of the squad.
Neymar had already practiced separately from his teammates on Monday.

I expect you were of the mind before the match begun, much like I was that Brazil had one of their easiest stakes on the Group Stages in that match against Switzerland and if it has played to the script it should have been a very decisive win for Brazil.
Leggings Neymar couldn't take the tension to the end of the match. "When he is on the field he helps us a lot".
