LIVERPOOL may have been handed a boost this evening, as Neymar appeared to suffer a thigh strain during Brazil's clash with Cameroon.
The Brazilian star lasted just six minutes of the fixture at MK Dons, before grimacing and being forced to call it a day, which could cast doubt over his inclusion in PSG's clash with Jurgen Klopp's men.

Fans groaned and jeered as Neymar gave up his captain's armband and was subbed off, after suffering a thigh injury.
But the news may be better received by Liverpool who are due to travel to Parc des Princes next week for their Champions League group stage clash.
Neymar lay on the ground in the opening few minutes as he struggled to fight back the tears, he was ushered off shortly after and was embraced on the sideline by Tite.
His compatriot Roberto Firmino checked to see he was okay, but it could now mean the pair do not face each other next week.
