Neymar picks up apparent groin injury during Brazil friendly

LONDON (AP) Striker Neymar was substituted with an apparent groin injury during the first half of Brazil's friendly against Cameroon on Friday.

The Brazilian star was taken off after just eight minutes and was replaced by Everton's Richarlison, who gave his team a 1-0 win with a header just before the halftime break.

Neymar was apparently injured after missing a shot five minutes into the game. He tried to stay on but was soon forced to come off.
