Neymar had surgery on March 3 and Rodrigo Lasmar, who is Selecao's team doctor, reveals the forward is working hard to be fit for the World Cup in June.
"Neymar is working hard and we expect him to be well prepared so that he can make an excellent preparation for the World Cup," Lasmar told GloboEsporte.
"He is recovering in the best possible way, as part of the established programme [for rehabilitation].
"We need to improve the physical condition [of a player coming back from injury] because it is probably low.
"Players returning from an injury must undergo an individual assessment in order to design the best strategy for them."
