When Brazil conceded Cameroon’s goal in stoppage time, Neymar got irritated, got up and leaned against the fence next to the bench. In the final minutes of the match, he sent and received several messages. One of them was from Elano, a former player, coach and also a commentator at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The photographers were able to show the home screen of Neymar’s cell phone, and Elano’s message was apparent. The “virtual detectives” also noticed that the background image is the Cup and the song on Spotify would be “Felina”, by MC Ryan SP and WIU. The images took over social networks and there were those who made a mistake and bet on “Bruna” and “Eliana” as senders.
in contact with UOL Sport, Elano confirmed to be the author of the message to Neymar. A teammate at Santos, he said that he often talks to the star of the Brazilian national team: “My cell phone went crazy, but it was just a message, we talk all the time and on all subjects”.
One of the issues with Neymar is the current recovery from an injury to his right ankle. In 2010, Elano went through a similar situation, but had to be cut from the World Cup in South Africa and was left out of the final stages precisely because of an ankle problem. Neymar, on the other hand, has a chance to be available against South Korea on Monday (5), at 4 pm, at Estádio 974, for the round of 16 of the World Cup.
Neymar has progressed well in the treatment and is waiting for the transition from the medical department to the pitch to find out if he can play. Danilo (ankle injury) and Alex Sandro (hip problem) are doubts. Alex Telles and Gabriel Jesus were cut from the Cup.
