CONMEBOL qualification for the 2026 FIFA World Cup begins again. Brazil will face huge challenges this week as they face two tough games against Colombia and Argentina. Unfortunately for them, Neymar was not called up for these games.
It has been a year since Argentina lifted the trophy in Qatar 2022. Now all CONMEBOL countries are actively participating in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers to be held in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
Brazil dominated the last qualifiers, but their journey to Qatar 2022 was not what fans expected. Now they are once again fighting for a place at the upcoming World Cup with the aim of securing first place in CONMEBOL.
During their loss to Uruguay in the last international break, Neymar suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee. The winger will be sidelined for at least 10 months due to this injury.
His team Al Hilal will receive approximately €7.5 million from FIFA as compensation for the injury. However, it seems that his nation needs him the most these days.
