Neymar takes central role in youthful Brazil side
There is a lot of pressure on his shoulders, but Neymar is enjoying life at the top and once more found himself at the forefront on the team's current visit to the USA.
Like Ronaldo and Romario before him, Neymar is able to capture the imagination like only a special few can and now, he is winning fans in America.
The Santos forward, though, feels little pressure, despite the expectations thrust upon him in an inexperienced squad.
"I'm a veteran (laughs)," Neymar told reporters. "I do not feel old yet though. I am one of the youngest in the squad, along with Lucas and [Wellington] Nem.
"It is a wonderful group, with only good people. We are all vying for positions, but respecting our team-mates and this is very good."
