Neymar Jr, the phenomenal soccer player has loads of pressures on his young shoulders as all Brazilian fans as well as football legends expects him to deliver his best and undoubtedly this football champ must have to deliver his best as right now Brazilian camp has only one exceptional player Neymar.
If we look over the Brazilian World Cup history we see that Pele had Tostao, Rivelino and Jairzinho. Socrates had Zico and Falcao. Romario had Bebeto and Rai. Ronaldo had Rivaldo and Ronaldinho. But In this World Cup, Neymar has only Neymar.
It’s a big question for football lovers as what Brazil would do if the star player got injured? Would they be able to survive in this World Cup without him?
Brazilian camp will have to prepare for the fierce reactions of the host fans if they fall and fail in the World Cup and Neymar who is continuously compared with football legend Pele must give his best to get his team through final and win the cup for his team.
The question arises whether one man is enough to carry the hopes of a nation.
