Elected man of the match by FIFA for this round of 16 World Cup between Brazil and South Korea (4-1), Neymar made an excellent comeback after several days of treating his ankle. As a reminder, the international auriverde had seriously injured his ankle against Serbia. A huge blow since his participation in the World Cup had been called into question.

In the end, after jars of intensive treatment, Neymar started against South Korea. Scorer from the penalty spot, the Paris Saint-Germain player was able to play 80 minutes of the match, before giving way to Rodrygo. A convincing return to which he returned at the end of the meeting. A moment that was very difficult for the native of Mogi das Cruzes.

“I spent the night crying a lot”

“I was very scared because I was doing very well, after a very good season. Suffering from an injury like the one I had is very hard. The other day, I spent the night crying a lot. My family knows it, but everything went well. It was worth it,”, he said in comments relayed by Globoesporte.

Reassured about the condition of his ankle, number 10 de la Seleção is now thinking of finally launching his World Cup and aiming for the title. “The time has definitely come to go further. We dream of the title, but we have to go step by step. It was the fourth game today, there are three left to play. We are very prepared, with our heads focused on getting this title,” he said. Next step Croatia next Friday at 4 p.m.
