Neymar has revealed that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar could be the last of his playing career. The forward is still 29 years old and he certainly hasn't gotten past his prime, but the former Barcelona player puts his thoughts on the mental side rather than the physical. I think Qatar 2022 will be my last World Cup because I don't know if I have the mental strength to deal with football, he said.
I will do everything possible to arrive in good shape, to win with my country, to fulfill the dream that I have had since I was a child and I hope I can achieve it. In a documentary about the Brazilian forward, named Neymar Jr. Dinastia de Reyes, he recalled his vertebral injury that ended his 2014 World Cup. It was one of the worst moments of my career.
It ruined my dream of playing a World Cup, playing the semi-final, the final I couldn't move my feet. I started crying uncontrollably, Neymar said. They took me to the hospital, they examined me and the doctor told me I have two news, one good and the other bad. Which one do you want? And I said, give me the wrong one. He said to me You came out of the World Cup. Crying, I told him, What's the good news? he concluded.
