Neymar wrote on his Instagram, that nothing came easy in his life and he has always had to work for his dreams and goals.

Being the most expensive footballer in history, Neymar Jr has scored 105 goals in 186 games for Barcelona and has netted 115 times in 163 appearances for Paris St-Germain.

He is Brazil's second-highest scorer with 75 goals, behind only Pele, but he is yet to win a World Cup title.

Another player, Danilo Luiz da Silva has also injured his left ankle and will also not play against Switzerland.
