It is an excellent chance for Brazilian poster boy Neymar Jr. to grab the eyeballs of the football world as Argentinian Legend Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Talismanic star Cristiano Ronaldo is out of the world cup. They use to steal the Limelight when it comes to football and Neymar was always rated as third in the race but know the time has come when Neymar can win the hearts and lead the competition, but what he is doing? He is rolling on the ground to get foul or penalty against the opponents, these are not my words, and this is how people are trolling him on Twitter.
While Neymar is not interested in reacting over it, he is busy in planning the strategy of the last eight against Belgium. In the post-match press conference, Neymar emphasis on the “suffer”. In a statement, the Brazilian superstar said, “We have to learn to suffer, It was a tough match, we knew the quality of our opponents. Neymar scored his sixth goal of the world cup tournaments in just 38 shots while Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo took 67 and 74 shots respectively to reach the mark. Brazilian coach praised Neymar by calling him the real superstar who just scored one goal but assist the winning goal to William. In a statement, Tite said, “Neymar was out for the 3-and-a-half month. At the top level, this is means a lot; A top-quality athlete would need 4 or 5 matches to recover properly. In the previous match he was impressive, and here he repeated a high-quality performance.”
Neymar in reply said, “I’m pleased with my performance but even more so with the team’s victory”. Brazil right now is in the race to bid their six world cup as they have been the winner of five previous world cup in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002. In this world cup, Brazil can once again become the champion because the big threats like Germany, Spain, Argentina and Portugal are out of the world cup.
