Will not whine over world cup loss for lifetime: Neymar

Madrid: Brazillian striker Neymar, whose national side was eliminated from the 2018 FIFA World Cup at the quarter-final stage, has said that he is not going to whine about the loss for the lifetime.

The 26-year-old, who has recently been appointed as the full-time captain of the Brazil national football team, further stated that he has got more reasons to be happy than to be sad.

“I did everything possible to be with Brazil at the World Cup. I gave my best, but I’m frustrated with this competition,” Marca.com quoted Neymar, as saying.

“I won’t whine for the rest of my life, as I have more reasons to be happy than to be sad nowadays,” he added.

Reflecting on his talented Paris-Saint Germain team-mate Kylian Mbappe, Neymar said that he is a very tough player and he is happy playing by his side.

“He is tough and I am very happy to develop by his side,” he noted.

“He is a very offensive player who likes to win and when he doesn’t win you feel it from his face after the game, it’s something that may last a few days,” he added.

Brazil had crashed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup after losing to Belgium 2-1 in the quarterfinals of the prestigious event.
