I think it [the 2022 World Cup] will be my last World Cup” Neymar has told DAZN.
“I see it as my last, because I don’t know if I have the strength of mind to deal with football any more. So I’ll do everything to turn up well, do everything to win with my country. To realise my greatest dream since I was little. And I hope I can do it,” the Brazilian explained.
Neymar will be 34 by the time the 2026 World Cup will be played – many players keep performing at the highest level at this age.
The Brazilian’s recent years have been overshadowed by recurring injuries but the 29-year-old still makes Ballon d’Or shortlists. Last season, he scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists for PSG.
Neymar spent 4 years at Blaugrana, scoring an impressive 105 goals.
