Maxwell hails the ability of Barcelona's Neymar
PSG left back Maxwell has lauded the abilities of compatriot Neymar ahead of this year's World Cup and suggested that any hopes of home success will fall heavily on the shoulders of the 22 year-old Barcelona superstar.
Speaking with Spanish newspaper Marca, Maxwell said: "Neymar has magic in his feet. He has put in some great performances for Brazil."
"I hope he is soon able to find his best form again after injury."
Neymar's return from a month-long absence has seen him gently re-integrated into a fiercely strong Barca team and Maxwell's PSG could draw them in the next round of this season's Champions League.
"The first thing to do is get through to the quarter finals. Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) is currently in great form. He is even scoring with his head! That's something we haven't seen before."
Ibrahimovic won't be scoring any goals at all at this summer's tournament after his Sweden side failed to qualify.
