Brazil international, Neymar will be counting on the luck of Singapore to score goals when he leads Selecao’s attacking line up against Senegal and Nigeria in an international friendly.
Singapore is a familiar ground for the PSG of France star who had his rehabilitation in the Asian country after a career-threatening injury in 2014.
He spoke at the pre-match conference ahead of today’s match against Senegal.
“I expect to score more and Singapore will give me luck again”, Neymar began.
“Unfortunately these last two years, I had two serious injuries and the recovery took so long.
“I prepared my mind to return to action but it was a really long summer for me. I prepared myself for every circumstance.
“Yeah, I believe that I can be the best in the world, and help Brazil be the best in the world.
“There were disappointments, defeats, I made a lot of mistakes.
“I have been playing for the national team for almost 10 years and I have a lot of responsibility and carry a lot of pressure.
“If you are persistent, you believe in the battle, you can be victorious in the end. I’m very happy to reach the 100-cap mark.”
