On Thursday Neymar made his long awaited return to full training, as he and his Paris Saint-Germain team-mates practised at their home ground, Parc des Princes.
The Brazilian has been missing from first-team action for three months after he sustained a foot injury in February.
He broke his metatarsal during a Ligue 1 match against Europa League runners-up, Marseille.
As a result Neymar missed out on PSG clinching the league and cup double, as well as the second-leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie with Real Madrid.
PSG have one game to go this season and Neymar could feature in it when they face Caen on Saturday.
The news will be welcomed in some parts of South America with Brazil’s star man looking increasingly likely he will be back to his best by the World Cup.
He recently spoke of his desire to win the tournament this summer and with Brazil favourites with the bookies, he will have the weight of his country on his shoulders to deliver the trophy.
‘The World Cup is the biggest championship in the world, I just want to play and be a champion,’ Neymar told Desimpedidos in a Facebook interview. ‘This cup has to be mine.
‘What inspires me the most is playing football. Being inside the field is my greatest joy.’
