“I think this is my last World Cup,” the 29-year-old said in a new documentary film “Little Neymar and the King’s Line” produced by DAZN. “I think this is my last time because I don’t know if I have enough energy to deal with football.
“So I will achieve good results at all costs, do everything I can to win my country and realize my biggest dream since I was a child. I hope I can do it.”
Brazil has lost the semi-finals and quarter-finals of the past two World Cups, and currently ranks first in the South American qualifier group with 28 points after 10 games.
Neymar scored his 12th World Cup qualifier goal when Brazil defeated Peru last month, bringing his national team to 69 goals, 8 behind Pele’s record.
He performed well in Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Colombia, a result that still allowed Brazil to lead Argentina by 6 points in the qualifier group.
Having won the World Cup five times before—the last time was in 2002—Selesan has been disappointed in the most recent matches.
In the 2014 tournament-Neymar was absent late due to injury-Brazil lost 7-1 in the semifinals to Germany, and in 2018 the team dropped out of the quarter after beating Belgium 2-1 finals.
