Neymar backed to shine by former World Cup winner
World Cup winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks has told reporters in London that Neymar, like Lionel Messi, will hold the key to the hosts' chances of winning a sixth World Cup this summer.
Banks, who of course won the tournament when England hosted the event, believes that the 22 year-old star has the ability to cope with the pressures that will come with having the World Cup in one's own country.
"He's an amazing player, really great. He stands out like Messi, who always draws attention when playing for club or country. I think he will play well and be a very strong player for Brazil in the World Cup."
