Neymar believes Brazil are on the right track after 4-1 Cameroon win
Neymar believes Brazil are on track to win the World Cup after his double ensured they topped Group A and set up a round of 16 clash with Chile.
The Barcelona ace found the net twice during the 4-1 win over Cameroon to once again show he can deal with the immense pressure placed on his shoulders.
The 22-year-old addressed the media after the game with Daily Mirror’s Jack Lang quoting the Brazilian forward’s views on Twitter.
Neymar said: “We’re on the right track, improving all the time. We’re hopefully getting closer to our goal.
“It’ll be a very tough game [versus Chile]. A lot of big teams have suffered. There aren’t any weak teams here.”
The former Santos star is now outright top goalscorer at the World Cup with four goals but more importantly Brazil’s display against Cameroon resembled the performances they produced in the Confederations Cup last year and that will give Luiz Felipe Scolari side confidence.
They face Chile on Saturday and will go into that clash knowing they have knocked their fellow South Americans out of their past two World Cups.
In 2010 they beat Chile 3-0 in the round of 16 and they were victorious 4-1 in 1998 in the same stage.
Scolari and co will hope history repeats itself on Saturday as Brazil aim to fulfill their destiny and win a sixth World Cup.
