XtraTime Web Desk: Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain’s star forward Neymar Jr. has undergone a successful surgery to repair a broken bone of his right foot, confirmed the Brazilian football federation today.

"The operation is over, Neymar is already in his room. It went well," a spokesman for the CBF said.

Neymar broke his fifth metatarsal -- the bone leading to his small toe -- during a 3-0 drubbing of Marseille on February 25.

The striker -- whose transfer from Barcelona cost PSG a record 222 million euros ($264 million) last August -- has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for the club.

Neymar will miss PSG's make-or-break game against Real Madrid next Tuesday. But with Lasmar predicting a recovery period of two and a half to three months, Brazil is worried that Neymar, 26, may not be fit for the World Cup in Russia starting in June.

The rival demands from club and country appeared to erupt into tension just as he went under the knife, with Paris newspaper L'Equipe reporting Saturday that PSG believes Lasmar lied about Neymar's condition.

The report said that Neymar was initially found to have suffered a minor fracture and that PSG was shocked to hear Lasmar say Thursday that it was a serious break requiring a longer than expected recuperation.
