Brazil boss Tite lauded the impact of Richarlison after the Everton forward struck in the 1-0 friendly win over Cameroon in Milton Keynes.

After two minutes of attempting to get back on his feet, Neymar was substituted with fans left disappointed.

A 1v1 challenge with Uruguay goalkeeper Martin Campana felled the 19-year-old Mbappe, and France coach Didier Deschamps did not have a decent prognosis.

Florian Thauvin had to replace the striker in the 36th minute after he fell awkwardly on the half-hour mark.

While signs are positive for his availiablity for a crucial Champions League match against Liverpool next week, the source said that he is likely to miss PSG's match against Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

PSG are now third in Group C, a point behind Liverpool, who are joint top with Napoli, making their upcoming clash in eight days' time particularly important.

However, his availability is now in real doubt after the superstar goalscorer suffered an injury while playing for Brazil tonight.

Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said: "He felt discomfort".

"He came off complaining of pain", Lasmar said.

"He was evaluated and he has already started treatment, but will need a little bit more time to have a better assessment, with a scan, but initially it doesn't seem like an important injury".
