Brazilian star, Neymar, has revealed that next year's World Cup could be the last he'll play in his career.
This was contained in some excerpts extracted from a documentary titled “Neymar & The Line Of Kings”, produced by DAZN and published on the channel's Twitter account on Sunday.
The striker who missed out in Brazil's 3-1 win at Venezuela on Sunday due to suspension, revealed that he will approach the Qatar 2022 World Cup as his last as a footballer.
“Man, I think it will be my last World Cup, I am facing it like the last World Cup because I don't know whether I will be able to, mentally, endure more soccer.”
“I will do everything possible to get there very well, I will do all I can to win it with my country and realize my dream, the biggest since my boyhood. I hope I can achieve it,” Neymar said.
The Paris Saint-Germain star has so far played at two World Cups. In 2014, he picked up a back injury in the quarterfinals against Colombia, which stopped him from playing in the 7-1 humiliation against Germany in the semifinals.
In the most recent edition of the tournament, Neymar had just returned from a serious foot injury and turned in an unimpressive performance in Brazil’s 1-2 quarterfinal defeat to Belgium.
