Neymar updates fans on his expected return date following his fractured foot that threatened his chances of playing for Brazil in the World Cup in June.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has updated fans on his fractured foot that was a potential threat to his appearance in the World Cup.

The 26-year-old suffered the blow in February during a Ligue 1 match with Marseille, and has not featured for the French outfit since.

Despite not playing in three months, the Brazilian winger is determined to go to Russia.

"I'm not yet at 100%. That will come with time. I'm still a bit scared of going all out, but there are still several days before our start," Neymar told reporters.

"It's going to take a bit more time for this fear to go away, but I'm ready to play. Nothing can stop me from doing so. I feel good physically. My foot is fine. Of course I have to adjust to certain things. I'm feeling a bit of discomfort but it's not going to stop me from playing.

"It's a dream to play in another World Cup, a dream which I hope won't be interrupted again."

Brazil play their opening World Cup match in Group E against Switzerland on June 17.
