The Chelsea midfielder told The Times of India about the skill of international colleague Neymar, Goal.com quoted Willian.

"I know one thing; Neymar is a star,” Willian said.

“He is the biggest name in the squad, one of the best in the world.

"But his responsibilities are something we all want to share. We all feel it and we all want to take that responsibility."

Going into the tournament many had speculated whether or not the 22-year-old could handle the pressure and so far he has answered those questions emphatically.

Willian and his team mates will now hope they can share the pressure, starting against Chile on Saturday.
