Brazil international Neymar believes the Seleção are gradually improving and will hit top form when it matters at the World Cup in 2014.

The Santos forward has played starring roles during Brazil’s five straight friendly wins, in which he scored a total of seven goals.

The Seleção have improved over the course of the two months as Mano Menezes works to create his ideal team, ahead of Brazil hosting the tournament in two years’ time.

Neymar said: "The national team is on a very good upwards curve. We are creating our identity and the team is getting more confident and becoming tighter.

"In a short time, it will suit us, our Brazilian way of doing things and things will happen."

The Barcelona and Chelsea target stated that the national team will work as one to try and claim the World Cup title.

He added: "Responsibility is always divided. Everybody does their part on the pitch. One man can't do it alone.

"In the World Cup there will be 23 determined players, looking for the win. I will be just one more Brazilian, chasing after the title."

The 20-year-old also took the time to reiterate that he is remaining in Brazil to see out his contract with Santos, having been the centre of constant transfer speculation recently.

"I'm happy here in Brazil, I'm happy at Santos. I have a dream of playing in Europe, but it's still not the right moment," the forward told Reuters.

Brazil’s next fixture is a friendly with Colombia in New Jersey on November 15.
