Munich – Football star Neymar is clearly thinking about the end of his career after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. “I think it will be my last world championship. I will play it as if it is my last, because I don’t know if I will still have the mental strength to deal with football after that,” the 29-year-old Brazilian said in the DAZN documentary.
As expected, Neymar would like to say goodbye to the world title. I will do everything in my power to go to the 2022 World Cup in the best possible way and win it for my country, to fulfill my biggest dream since I was young. “I hope I can do that,” he said. With his club Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar’s contract is still until 2026.
In the 2014 World Cup match against Germany, Neymar missed due to injury
At the 2014 World Cup in their country, Brazil were knocked out in the semi-finals with a stunning 7-1 defeat to Germany, but Neymar was injured in this match.
In the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the five-time world champion failed with Neymar in the quarter-final against Belgium (1:2). So far, the star has only won the 2013 Confederations Cup and 2016 Olympic gold in Rio with the Selecao.
Brazil currently occupies the first place in the South American group in the World Cup qualifiers. After nine victories and a 0-0 win over Peru on Sunday, the team has a six-point lead over arch-rivals Argentina.
