IELTS is an International English Language Testing System for listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Those who take this test are qualified to submit applications to national and international university programs, with different score requirements depending on the program. For instance, some technology programs can require a score of 5.5, but other departments usually have higher requirements, probably 7.0 onwards. What do these results mean?

"Neymar and Danilo went through an MRI on Friday afternoon and we found ligament damage in the ankle of both of them," Rodrigo Lasmar said in a statement shared by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF). "They will miss the next game for sure and we will be cautious as they will undergo treatment in order to try to get them in shape so they can play again in the World Cup."
