2022 World Cup Will Surely Be My Last, I’m Not Mentally Strong To Manage My Life As A Footballer – Neymar

Brazilian professional footballer, Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, known as Neymar, has admitted he does not expect to play another World Cup after the 2022 tournament in Qatar

According to him, the strain of the game has taken its toll on his body and mind.

Having seen his two attempts to lift football’s biggest prize end in frustration, the Brazil star believes next year is his final opportunity.

The Brazil star spearheaded his nation’s efforts to win their sixth crown at the 2014 and 2018 editions, only to see those quests fall short at the semi-final and quarter-final stages respectively.

And with little more than a year to go before the next competition kicks off, he is not optimistic about extending his international career through to the 2026 World Cup in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

He said:

“I think it’s my last World Cup.”

“I see it as my last because I don’t know if I have the strength of mind to deal with football any more.

“So I’ll do everything to turn up well, do everything to win with my country, to realise my greatest dream since I was little. And I hope I can do it.”
