After Brazil’s heartbreaking elimination from the World Cup competition, Neymar is doubtful if he would ever play for Brazil again

Neymar, a superstar in the sport of football, said on Friday that he is doubtful whether he would return to playing for Brazil after the country’s elimination from the FIFA World Cup 2022 in the quarterfinal round. Brazil is a five-time defending champion. Neymar scored a goal for Brazil in the first session of extra time that tied the record for most goals scored in a match, but it was not enough as Brazil was defeated by Croatia, who finished as runners-up in 2018, 4-2 on penalties.

Neymar’s shattered expression was evident as he crumpled to the ground and was unable to hold back his emotions after Brazil’s devastating loss. Thiago Silva made an effort to calm Neymar, who seemed to be in the same state of disbelief as the Brazil supporters at the Education City Stadium, who were unable to understand what had occurred in the last 15 minutes of the intensely contested match.

Neymar’s 77th goal for Brazil was a stunning one-two combination with Rodrygo and Perdo, and it allowed him to tie Pele’s record for most goals scored by a Brazilian player. Nevertheless, Neymar’s happiness did not last long since Crotia scored an equaliser in the second session of extra time and then went on to dominate the penalty kicks.

Neymar is one of the finest players in the world, but he has yet to win the World Cup after winning the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio and the triumph at the Copa America in 2019. It was Neymar’s third time competing in the World Cup, and it seemed as if the star player for Paris Saint-Germain had helped Brazil advance to the semifinals. However, it was not meant to be for the world-famous footballer Neymar.

“To tell you the truth, I have no idea. Because things are so tense right now, I don’t believe it’s a good idea to chat. Neymar, who would be 34 years old at the time of the 2026 World Cup, said that it’s possible that he’s not thinking clearly.

“To claim that this is the end would be to put too much pressure on myself, but I also cannot promise anything else. Let’s see what develops in the future, shall we?

“I want to use the next few moments to reflect on it, to think about what it is that I want for myself. I will not rule out the possibility of playing for Brazil, nor can I promise with absolute certainty that I will return.

Neymar’s teammate Dani Alves has said that he will be hanging up his cleats for international service, but he has every intention of continuing to play for his club.

In order to go to the semi-finals, Croatia must first find out who will advance from the second quarter-final match between Argentina and the Netherlands.
