SAO PAULO: Brazil striker Neymar left Wednesday's training session early with back pains, which could force him to miss Friday's opening World Cup qualifier against Bolivia.

Brazil's team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told journalists at the training ground in Teresopolis that Neymar had already started getting treatment but that it was too soon to say whether he'll be fit for the game at the Neoquimica Arena in Sao Paulo.

“The next 24 hours will be important to see how he will recover,” Lasmar said.

Footage published by Brazil's soccer confederation on social media showed Neymar putting his hands on his back and kneeling on the pitch.
