The Brazilian's season came to an early conclusion two months ago after he he fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

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."

This injury will definitely affect his world cup form. He will struggle a lot and unfortunately, Brazil need him the most. They have a good team though, with or without him. Good luck Neymar.
