Neymar is counted among the best football players in the world
Neymar is counted among the great footballers of the present time. But their share of the World Cup trophy is yet to come. This player, who plays from Brazil, has played two FIFA World Cups, but so far the title victory has not come in his part. Now Neymar has admitted that the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar could be his last World Cup as the workload in the game has taken a toll on his body and mind. Brazil’s journey in the 2014 and 2018 World Cups ended in the semi-finals and quarter-finals.
The World Cup is now less than a year away and Neymar is in no mood to take his international career forward and does not want to play until the 2026 World Cup. Neymar said in DAZN’s documentary Neymar & The Line Of Kings, “I think this is my last World Cup. I see it as my last World Cup because I don’t know if I have the brain power to fight football. So I will always do everything to play well. I will do everything to make my country win, I will do everything to achieve the biggest dream of my childhood. I hope I can do this.”
“I don’t know if I have the strength of mind to deal with football any more.”

Neymar’s World Cup journey
Neymar played his first World Cup at his home ground. He participated in the 2014 World Cup which was played in Brazil and was his first World Cup. At that time Neymar used to play for Spain’s legendary club Barcelona. The Brazilian team was very excited to win the World Cup title at home. He won his last World Cup in 2002. The team went beyond the group stage. Brazil advanced to the quarter-finals by defeating Chile. In this last-8 match, Brazil faced Colombia. Neymar’s leg was fractured in this match. The team, however, won and reached the semi-finals. But Germany defeated Brazil in the semi-finals.
Four years later, Neymar’s attempt was to get his team the World Cup. The platform was of Russia. Neymar was injured before this World Cup played in 2018, but he got fit and prepared for the World Cup. But he could not go beyond the quarter-finals to his team. With this, his dream of winning the World Cup was shattered.
