Neymar dedicated to leading Brazil into 2018 World Cup
Neymar has insisted he will do all he can to make sure he is leading Brazil into the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Brazil’s dream of adding a sixth World Cup title ended on Tuesday and in humiliating fashion as Germany defeated them 7-1 in the semi-final at Belo Horizonte.
The Barcelona forward was unavailable through injury but will be working hard to ensure he is back to his best soon.
Globo Esporte quoted the 22-year-old, he said: “I want more. If I workout today and tomorrow, I want to train better.
“I'll have to train hard, dedicate myself and do everything I can for the next four years to be in a World Cup again.
“We failed, yes. We lost. But that's what I said, is part of football.”
Neymar again praised his team mates for continuing to work hard on Tuesday against Germany, even when 7-1 down.
He added: “We did not want to lose that way. At least they ran, even losing 7.
“They ran like men. And that is why I am proud of them all. They are people that I will admire even more.”
Brazil and Barcelona fans will hope Neymar is back to full fitness soon and firing in the goals again.
