Neymar has surprised with his latest statements for a documentary by DAZN, where he has confessed that he believes that “in 2022 it will be my last World Cup”. At 29 years old, the Brazilian could already be considering leaving aside the selection because: “I don’t know if I have the mental strength to deal with football more.”
The PSG player says he will “do everything possible to do well, do everything possible to win with my country, to make my biggest dream come true since I was little. And I hope I can. “
The winger has participated in two World Cups with Brazil, in 2014 and 2018. In the first, he could only play until the quarterfinals because in the match against Colombia he suffered a serious back injury after receiving a knee from the Colombian Juan Camilo Zúñiga. On the other hand, in the World Cup in Russia, Brazil reached the quarter-finals and Neymar was widely criticized in his country for his performance in the elimination against Belgium by 1-2.
Brazil recovers Neymar, who could not be against Venezuela because he had to serve a penalty for cards, for today’s game against Colombia of the qualifying round of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The ‘seleçao’ has reaped full of victories in the nine games.
