Xtra Time Web Desk: Neymar Jr is using a NASA technology to get back to full fitness ahead of the knock-out stages in ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. He twisted his right ankle during Brazil’s opening fixture against Serbia and had to be substituted. He had to miss the game against Switzerland and is in serious doubts for the final group game against Cameroon.
His availability in that third game will depend on his progress and how his national team is doing in terms of qualification. The Paris Saint Germain star has turned to NASA technology to provide him with intensive physiotherapy.
Neymar shared a post on social media where he was seen getting treated with a compression boot. The equipment uses NASA technology and serves to accelerate healing. The boot combines three different massage techniques and activates blood circulation.
It also stimulates venous return, reduces swelling, relieves pain, reduces muscle fatigue, eliminates accumulated lactic acid, cramps and improves soft tissue and bone healing.
Neymar took to his Instagram to share his feelings about the setback: “The pride and love I feel for wearing the shirt has no explanation. If God gave me the opportunity to choose a country to be born in, it would be BRAZIL,” he said.
“Nothing in my life was given or easy, I always had to pursue my dreams and goals. Never wishing evil to anyone, but helping those in need.
“Today has become one of the hardest moments of my career… and again in a World Cup I have an injury yes, tiring, it will hurt but I am sure I will have the chance to come back because I will do my best to help my country, my teammates and myself.
“Long time to wait for the enemy to take me down like this? Never. I am a child of God and my faith is endless.”
