NEYMAR ... REDEMPTION IN RUSSIA?

RUSSIA 2018

"The Brazil everyone respects is back"

True to their past, Brazil are a formidable side once again. Following the disappointment of the last FIFA World Cup™ and the ensuing aftermath, the national team went back to their roots and rebuilt their reputation with a swashbuckling campaign to qualify for Russia 2018.

Neymar has been one of the pillars of that renaissance. Arguably in the best form of his career right now, the No10 is the team's leader both on and off the pitch. At the next World Cup he is relishing the prospect of expanding on the promise he showed at the previous edition, before injury ended his tournament prematurely.

Ahead of the Final Draw, Neymar spoke to FIFA.com about the Brazilian national team, regaining the respect they had lost, the role luck plays in winning the World Cup and the extent to which the traumatic experience at the last finals influenced the player he has become.

After suffering a huge blow at the last World Cup, Brazil are a formidable side once again, and Neymar has been one of the pillars of that renaissance. Ahead of the Final Draw for Russia 2018, FIFA.com spoke to him about the current Brazil team, regaining the respect they had lost, the role luck plays in winning the World Cup and the extent to which the injury he suffered at the 2014 finals influenced the player he has become.

FULL INTERVIEW

I think this World Cup is going to be huge for Brazilians. Personally, I'm going to give everything I've got to win it.
