Brazil haven’t got their hands on football’s biggest honor since 2002 and will look to make the most of Neymar’s presence to do so in Qatar. The PSG superstar has featured in two World Cups for the Selecao so far, but he has thus far been unable to spearhead his national team to the promised land.
Neymar himself has gotten off to a good start this season and has been nominated for the 2021 ballon d’Or alongside his best friends and PSG teammates Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
