Neymar, Lionel Messi, soccer

Neymar's ankle injury looked grisly, it appears to be twisted to the back. This happened in their Copa del Rey match against Getafe. Neymar attempted to secure and save the ball that's about to go over the endline, he landed awkwardly that he lost his balance. It's good to know that although it appears to be serious, the initials results indicated that it's only a sprain.

Lionel Messi is back from injury that kept him sidelined for 2 months, he scored twice. He now have a total of 4 goals over the two legs against Getafe that sends Barcelona to the quarterfinals on a 6-0 aggregate score.
