Brazil Star Neymar: Neymar will play a World Cup qualifying match with Brazil in Colombia later on Sunday. The Seleção leads the 10-team free-for-all competition with 27 points after nine games. Brazilian star Neymar says next year’s World Cup in Qatar could be the last of his career.
The comments by the 29-year-old striker were made in the documentary “Neymar & The Line Of Kings,” An excerpt was published on the channel’s Twitter feed on Sunday.
Neymar will play a World Cup qualifying match with Brazil in Colombia later on Sunday.
The Seleção leads the 10-team free-for-all competition with 27 points after nine games. The forward did not play in Brazil’s 31st win against Venezuela on Thursday due to suspension.
The match in Barranquilla marks Neymar’s return from beating Peru 20 on September 10, in which he delivered a key Brazilian effort with an assist and a goal. Despite his best efforts, Neymar made it clear after the game that he is upset about the treatment at home.
“I don’t know what else I need to do with this shirt for people to respect Neymar,” he said. Local media accused the striker of being out of shape in the 1-0 win at Chile earlier in September, which prompted the striker to walk around shirtless during training to show how to fit he is.
Against Peru, Neymar Romário beat Brazil’s top scorer in the World Cup tie with 12 goals. He is also closing in on Pele’s record of 77 official goals for Brazil.
Neymar has played in two world championships so far. In 2014 he suffered a back injury in the quarterfinals against Colombia, which prevented him from playing in the semifinals of the 71st humiliation against Germany.
In the latest edition of the tournament, Neymar had just returned from a serious foot injury and had a low-key performance in Brazil’s 21st quarter-final loss to Belgium. He left Russia under heavy criticism for what appeared to be an overreaction to fouls.
Neymar won the 2013 Confederations Cup with Brazil. He also won the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The forward was injured before the Copa América 2019, which the Seleção won at home.
