Neymar starts World Cup countdown after undergoing successful surgery

Neymar has undergone successful surgery on his broken foot, with the Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil star now starting his recovery process.

The 26-year-old suffered a fractured metatarsal during a domestic outing for PSG against Marseille last weekend.

After initial confusion as to whether he would be forced under the knife, the decision was taken to send him for an operation.
