Al Hilal have confirmed that Neymar has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

Neymar will now undergo surgery after suffering a meniscus tear in his left knee.

โ€œThe medical tests Neymar underwent confirmed the Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Meniscus tear injury in his knee.

โ€œHe will be going through surgery and then a treatment program that will be determined later,โ€ Al-Hilal posted on X, formerly called Twitter.

The Brazil forward picked up the injury while playing in his countryโ€™s 2-0 defeat to Uruguay in World Cup qualifying on Tuesday evening.

The 30-year-old is now likely to miss the rest of the season.

It also leaves Neymar facing a race against time to recover ahead of the Copa America in the USA next summer.
