Neymar's ongoing injury issues continue as he left early during Brazil's friendly against Nigeria in Singapore. The PSG attacker could only last 12 minutes when he felt some discomfort in his left thigh while pointing to his hamstring and Tite was forced to replace him with Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho.

Once on the bench, Neymar had ice on the injury. Despite not fully knowing the extent of the injury just yet, this may be a sign that PSG might have to once again prepare for his absence.

2019 has not been a friend to Neymar, who suffered an ankle injury earlier in the year during Brazil's friendly against Qatar and forced him to miss Copa America.

Now, finally after resolving his issues with Thomas Tuchel's PSG (and scoring goals in the process this season) Neymar might have to put another pause on his campaign due to injury. 

Brazil tied 1-1 with Nigeria after Casemiro canceled out Joe Aribo's opener in the first half.
