Mexico Head Coach Miguel Herrera wary of Brazil star Neymar
Mexico Head Coach Miguel Herrera has singled out Neymar as Brazil’s main threat.
El Tri will face the Seleção in their second Group A match at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and there is no chance of Herrera underestimating Neymar’s qualities.
I feel he’s Brazil’s most gifted player,” he told FIFA.com. “He’s the figurehead of this team and currently of this World Cup, as it’s on home soil. They love him here. We’ll have to be really on our toes to stop a player of his ability.
“Once he’s got the ball he’s a guy who can tip the balance – he’s got so much skill he can beat one, two or even three players. We have to try and cut off the service: stopping him getting on the ball will be really important.”
Mexico start their FIFA World Cup campaign against Cameroon on 13 June, before ending at Itaipava Arena Pernambuco, where they will face Croatia ten days later.
