One year from the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Neymar gave his prognosis. The PSG star sees Brazil winning in the final against a European nation, but it is not France.
Apart from the Confederations Cup (2013) and the Olympic Games (2016), Neymar has not won a big title with Brazil. He was injured during the coronation of his selection for the 2019 Copa America. He played in the final of this same competition a few weeks ago, lost to Argentina. In the World Cup, he was injured in the quarter-finals in 2014, and therefore did not directly witness the disaster against Germany in the semi-finals (7-1). In 2018 in Russia, Brazil was released in the quarterfinals against Belgium (2-1). The PSG player is therefore betting heavily on the next World Cup, which starts in a year. He clearly stated some time ago that she would surely be his last, when he was « only » 30 years old. “I hope to make the history of the World Cup. The competition is fast approaching. I would have another possibility to defend the chances of my country ”, Neymar told BeIN Sports before giving his prognosis.
« We will bring the trophy home, maybe against Italy in the final » according to Neymar

“I imagine that Brazil will be crowned world champion. We’ll take the trophy home. Against who ? It’s difficult. Maybe Italy. But we will take the trophy home ”, assured Neymar, particularly confident. Brazil, first in the South American group ahead of Argentina, has already won its ticket for Qatar. The Seleção de Tite will be able to use the last five games to quietly prepare for this great event, of which Neymar has made it a clear objective.
