Neymar Junior has endured a season of trying. The Paris Saint-Germain striker, a former Barcelona player, has been in the Ligue 1 category for 2021/22 and saw his team leave the Champions League last month for Real Madrid.
The match later, at the Parc des Princes, saw Neymar and teammate Lionel Messi being influenced by PSG fans. It sounded like a change in Brazil’s performance in the French capital amid rumors that the club might let him go.
The 30-year-old has returned home, working with the Brazilian national team ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Bolivia. But all is not right even to return to the BR according to Goal; his place in Selecao is questioned.
He will start on Thursday when Brazil play Chile, possibly alongside Vinicius Junior and Antony. But with the likes of Richarlison, Raphinha, Gabriel Jesus, Gabigol, Rodrygo Goes and Gabriel Martinelli all pushing for minutes, you will need to improve between now and the World Cup to secure the minutes.
