Brazil forward Neymar had to be withdrawn after just eight minutes of his side's global friendly against Cameroon.

Neymar was withdrawn early for Brazil and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting hopes his PSG team-mate is not seriously injured.

Paris Saint-Germain duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were both were substituted due to injuries while playing for their respective countries on Tuesday night.

Neymar appeared to hurt his groin early in Tuesday's worldwide friendly win over Choupo-Moting's Cameroon on Tuesday.

Neymar played down his injury, saying in an Instagram message that "it was nothing serious".

The club revealed that Neymar has suffered a groin strain, whilst Mbappe has been diagnosed with a bruised right shoulder.

However, doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told reporters that while a scan was needed to comfirm the exact diagnosis he did not think the injury to Neymar's adductor muscle would keep him out long.
