Brazil’s striker Neymar considers taking a break in his international career, according to recent reports.
After Brazil had been eliminated by Croatia in the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup, Neymar admitted that his future in the team was unclear.
The 30-year-old stated that he’s “I’m not closing any doors to the Seleção, but I’m also not saying 100% that I want to be back.”
Several days later, the story got a development.
According to L’Equipe, Neymar wants to pause his international career after the World Cup. The break is expected to be several months long and does not mean the end of his stint in the Brazilian national team.
Later on, UOL reported that it is likely Neymar will keep playing for Brazil after his teammates have asked him to stay in the team.
