Neymar has been ruled out for four weeks with a grade two hamstring strain.
The 27 year old footballer began his recovery in Paris on Monday after picking up the injury against Nigeria during friendly game with Brazil.
The Paris Saint-Germain star posted a photo of himself on Instagram with the caption ‘recovery’.
Neymar will miss PSG’s two UEFA Champions League matches but hopefully should be back in time to face Real Madrid.
Brazil national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told Globo Esporte: Worrying situation, of course. He did not cite very sharp pain. He felt discomfort. A slightly vague complaint. He asked to continue, but soon realized that it was not very normal and asked to leave to have no complication.
The first evaluation is always for greater care, but you need the exam to understand what happened, if it was just muscle fatigue or if you need more care.’ Neymar was replaced by midfielder Philippe Coutinho after feeling an injury in his left thigh.
The forward missed this year’s Copa America because of a right ankle injury. He only returned to action two months later.
