Neymar: World Cup pressure is what I was born for
Brazil's World Cup 2014 top scorer Neymar insists that he is yet to succomb to the alleged pressures surrounding him as the hosts' march towards a sixth title continues with a game against Colombia tomorrow in Fortaleza.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the fixture, the 22 year-old Barcelona attacker said: "Of course there's pressure in a World Cup but, to me, this is a dream."
"It's something I've always wanted. When I was a kid, I saw Ronaldo with his hairdo scoring goals and I used to think to myself: "I want to play in a World Cup, I want to be like Ronaldo, I want to win a world title."
"And now I'm here. I don't have to keep thinking about the pressure, I have to enjoy it. We can all overcome this, we're playing at home, with our families and friends in the stands, and every supporter is on our side."
