Brazil and Barcelona forward Neymar believes that Brazil can win the World Cup in Russia next year.
He said that it had taken time for the team to rebuild their confidence after the humiliation against Germany in the last World Cup but he believes that they have improved since then.
He said that Brazil is always the favorite of any World Cup and that this would not change in Russia. He said that the team had taken a lot of time to gel and he believes that they have improved massively during the last few months.
Indeed Brazil is currently top of their qualifying table and may qualify for the Russian World Cup if they beat Paraguay in their next game.
He said that there is always a big expectation from the Brazilian fans and it is important that they do not disappoint them. He believes that it will be a tough thing to win the World Cup in Europe, but there is enough talent in the team to achieve this.
He said that there is no more pressure on him to lift Brazil nowadays as the team has matured a lot and that there are now other quality players in the team.
For him, the strength of Brazil at the next World Cup will be their team play and it is important that the players continue to learn how to play together. He said that you cannot win a World Cup by playing like 11 individuals on the pitch and it is important that you play like a team.
Neymar believes that there will be other strong nations at the World Cup 2018 in Russia, but it is important that you focus on your own team rather than the opposing teams. He believes that there is still time for the team to improve and become even better.
