Neymar hopes for return this month

 Neymar’s injured back is healing well and he is aiming to return to action in a friendly for his club Barcelona on August 18, the Brazil forward said yesterday.

Neymar fractured a bone in his back following a challenge from Colombia defender Juan Zuniga in Brazil’s World Cup quarter-final and was ruled out for the rest of the tournament.

“I am recovering bit by bit from the injury and I will arrive in Barcelona at 100 per cent,” Neymar, who is due back at Barca on August 5, told reporters at a promotional event in Japan.
