Neymar limps out of Brazil training session

Neymar gave Brazil cause for concern by hobbling out of a training session less than three weeks before the Copa America starts.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar clutched at his left knee after attempting a routine shot and limped away from the session in discomfort.

Neymar, 27, spent three months on the sidelines with a foot injury earlier this year.

He returned for PSG towards the end of April and linked up with Tite's squad over the weekend as Brazil aim to reclaim the continental crown they last won in 2007.
