Brazil forward Neymar suffered a nasty looking groin injury and had to be withdrawn after just eight minutes of his side's international friendly against Cameroon.

Fans flocked to Stadium MK to see the superstar in action, but they were treated to just six minutes of action from the 26-year-old.

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