The Brazilian said on Friday he was unsure if he would play for the national team again after losing to Croatia in the quarter-final of the World Cup on penalties.
Does this mean the end for Neymar in the selection? The Brazilian number 10, who equaled Pelé’s goalscoring record in the national team, was evasive after the quarter-final failure against Croatia: “I need to analyze, think a little more about what is good for me and for the national team.»
«It is very difficult. I think today is worse than what we felt in the last World Cup (2-1 loss to Belgium in the quarter finals)“Explained the star of Brazil and Paris SG. “Saying this is the end would thrill me, but I can’t 100% guarantee I’ll be back. Let’s see what will happen in the futureadded the 30-year-old striker, visibly shaken by his side’s elimination.
«It’s hard to find the words to describe this momenthe added.We fought, we fought, I’m proud of all my teammates, proud of the personality they have, that they get penalties. It is not easy to take on this exercise“, he continued. Neymar’s teammate Dani Alves has said he will retire as an international player, but he intends to continue playing at club level. For his part, coach Tite has indicated that he will leave the position he held since 2016.
