Neymar could end his participation in the FIFA World Cups after the next edition of the tournament, which will take place in 2022 in Qatar, as revealed by the Brazilian national team star himself in a documentary produced by the sports streaming service DAZN.
“I think it is my last World Cup. I approach it that way because I don’t know if I have the mental strength to deal with football“said the PSG forward.
“I will do everything to get well, to win with my country, to realize the dream that I have had since I was a child and I hope I can get it, “he added.
If Neymar makes his words come true, he would end his career in the international tournament 30 years after playing in Qatar what would be his third World Cup after Brazil 2014 – where he suffered a serious injury that prevented him from helping his team in the historic win in which Brazil lost 7-1 to Germany – and Russia 2018, where they reached the quarterfinals.
This Sunday, the Brazilian team drew 0-0 against Colombia in the World Cup qualifiers, losing the perfect step in the qualifying tournament of nine consecutive victories. However, the ‘Canarinha’ remains leader from the table with 28 points. The 2022 World Cup will be held in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, 2022.
