Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar believes the Brazilian team has what it takes to win this year’s 2022 World Cup slated for Qatar.
Neymar made this known during a live discussion with Flamengo player Diego Ribas on Friday, where he stated that he would sacrifice his life to help Brazil win the World Cup.
“I really wanted to win the Champions League for PSG this time, but unfortunately, we couldn’t,” Neymar told Flamengo player Diego Ribas in a live discussion.
“Now I want to finish 2022 with the World Cup title.
“I’m preparing myself both physically and mentally so that everyone goes well, and we have a ‘Brazilian World Cup’ this time. I’ll give my life for it, I have played it two times now and I know how it works.
“If you are not ready, the opportunity will go away, so I can’t let it escape me,” he added.
Neymar’s Goals Record
With 71 goals in 117 matches for Brazil since debuting at age 18, Neymar is the second highest goalscorer for his national team, trailing Pelé. He was a key player in Brazil’s victories at the 2011 South American Youth Championship, where he finished as leading goalscorer, and the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, where he won the Golden Ball.
His participation in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2015 Copa América was cut short by injury and a suspension, respectively, before captaining Brazil to their first Olympic gold medal in men’s football at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Having renounced the captaincy, he featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and after missing the 2019 Copa América through injury, helped Brazil to a runner-up finish at the 2021 tournament.
Off the pitch, Neymar ranks among the world’s most prominent sportsmen. SportsPro named him the most marketable athlete in the world in 2012 and 2013, and ESPN cited him as the world’s fourth-most famous athlete in 2016. In 2017, Time included him in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
In 2018, France Football ranked Neymar the world’s third highest-paid footballer. The following year, Forbes ranked him the world’s third highest-paid athlete dropping a spot to fourth in 2020.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
