Paris Saint Germain superstar Neymar is under pressure in his homeland due to his poor form for Brazil.
Brazil ended their nine-game winning streak on Sunday in their scoreless draw against Colombia with Neymar losing the ball 30 times and allowed himself to get caught up in a running battle with Everton’s center-back Yerry Mina.
The player had claimed before the game that the 2022 World Cup would be his last with the national team and the news has not been received well by a section of his countrymen who have called on coach Tite to get the player under control according to reports from Dario Sport.
Back in September, Neymar who surpassed Pele in caps against Colombia by earning his 114th was accused of being overweight and missed the victory at Venezuela due to an accumulation of silly cards in October.
His form at PSG has not helped his situation too with the player scoring just one goal and providing two assists in the club's first seven games.
Neymar will have a special reserved space in the Hall of Fame at the Maracanã.— 𝗡𝗲𝘆𝗺𝗼𝗹𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗲 (@Neymoleque) October 12, 2021
