Neymar: Brazil

Brazil superstar Neymar believes that the 2022 World Cup will be his last as he is not sure if he can mentally prepare for another one. Brazil played out a goalless draw against Colombia in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup. They currently lead the qualification group with 28 points from 10 games. Neymar missed out on their 3-1 win over Venezuela in their game prior to this one due to suspension. Against Peru, Neymar overtook Romario as Brazil’s top goalscorer in World Cup Qualifiers, with 12 goals. He is also approaching Pele’s record of 77 official goals for Brazil.

“I think it (2022) will be my last World Cup,” Brazil superstar Neymar said. “I am facing it like the last World Cup because I don’t know whether I will be able to, mentally, endure more soccer. I will do everything possible to get there very well. I will do all I can to win it with my country and realize my dream, the biggest since my boyhood. I don’t know what else I need to do with this shirt for people to respect Neymar.”

Neymar was a shadow of himself in qualifying with 17 missed passes and 30 losses of possession recently. Media in Brazil heavily criticized him for being out of shape but Brazil coach Tite defended the forward.

“He is an exceptional player because he makes exceptional plays, he does it exceptionally and not ordinarily,” he said. “He is a special player, we know it. And he was also well marked, sometimes by two players.”
