Player believes he will no longer be able to ‘head’ to face the 2026 World Cup
The player Neymar declared that the next world Cup, which will take place in Qatar in 2022, could be the last of his career. The team’s second top scorer declared that he does not know if he will be able to defend Brazil’s shirt at the 2026 World Cup, which will have disputes in the United States, Canada and Mexico. “I Think [em 2022] it’s my last World Cup. I see it as my last one because I don’t know if I’ll be better able, head on, to stand up to more football. So I’m going to do everything to get there very well, do everything to win with my country. To fulfill my dream since I was little and I hope to be able to achieve it”, said Neymar during an interview with the documentary “Neymar Jr. and The Line Of Kings”, by DAZN.
Currently 29 years old, Neymar will be 34 when the World Cup takes place in North America and at that age other players have already been called up to play for the national team. the defender Thiago Silva, for example, is 37 years old and was called by the technician Tite for this year’s national team games and can compete in the World Cup in 2022. If Brazil manages to qualify in the Qualifiers, Neymar is one of the right names to try for a new title in Qatar and, with that, will play in his third Cup. The first was in 2014, here in Brazil. Afterwards, he played in Russia, when he suffered a serious injury in the quarter-finals and did not participate in the game in which the national team lost 7-1 to Germany. This Sunday, the 10th, the Paris Saint-Germain player will play in the match against Colombia, being the 114th time he will play for the Brazilian national team, surpassing Skin e Djalma Santos and becoming the fifth player who most entered the field to compete with the Brazil shirt.
