Reports in the Brazilian press suggest that the 22-year-old could well feature in the World Cup final in less than a week, provided Brazil can overcome Germany in Wednesday’s semi final.
The story goes that medical staff could get him through the game using painkillers and held talks with the star striker at the weekend.
He was carried off with three minutes remaining in the quarterfinal clash with Colombia following Juan Zuniga’s challenge.
If Brazil makes it through and Neymar returns then you should also expect to see a pig fly.
