NEYMAR RETURNS TO FULL SCALE TRAINING AS BRAZIL BEGIN INTENSIVE CAMPING AT TOTTENHAM’S NEW FACILITY

Neymar Junior returned to full scale training as Brazil begin World Cup preparations with training camp at brand new Tottenham headquarters in London.

The PSG attacker had been nursing an injury for almost 4 months and was sited in London amongst Brazil’s players who are training ahead of the Russia 2018 World Cup.

The squad will use the brand new facilities, named the Lodge, as their pre-World Cup training base until June 6, when they will fly over to Russia.

The players completed some light ball work and fitness drills in the London heat ahead of the first of two friendlies.

They will face Croatia this Sunday before playing Austria the following week before the global showpiece begins.

Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus was involved in the session along with former Chelsea player Felipe Luis and Liverpool goalkeeper target, Alisson.

Brazil’s World Cup gets underway against Switzerland on June 17 before games against Costa Rica and Serbia, who make up the rest of their group.

Neymar has not played a competitive match since a foot injury ended his season prematurely back in February.

‘Physically I am well, my foot is fine. I am adapting in a few things. I still feel some discomfort, but it is not something that will trouble me,’ Neymar said on Sunday.

‘I am ready to play, there is nothing that can stop me. What I feel today is this fear because I am coming back now.’
