Neymar unsure over Brazil's future after World Cup Knock out

Following Brazil’s defeat in the World Cup, Neymar has refused to rule out quitting international duty.

The tournament’s pre-tournament favorites were eliminated in the quarterfinals by Croatia following a thrilling 1-1 draw decided by penalty kicks.

Manager Tite has already acknowledged his resignation from the Sele├žo, and Neymar has refused to provide any assurances that he would continue to serve his country.

Neymar remarked after the game, “I’m not shutting any doors on the national team, but I can’t say for certain that I will return.” “I need more time to consider what is best for myself and the national team in this situation.”

After the final whistle, Neymar was visibly sad and said that this was the lowest point of his international career.

“It is a horrible sensation. I believe this emotion is worse than what occurred during the last World Cup,” he remarked. “It is hard to find the appropriate words to describe this moment.

“We battled, and I am proud of my teammates for the courage they showed by taking penalties.”

Neymar’s incredible solo strike late in extra time seemed to have propelled the Selecao to victory. Still, Croatia scored with their first effort on target only minutes before the final whistle to force penalties, where the European team finally prevailed.

Neymar equaled Pele’s record of 77 goals for the Brazil national team with his goal. Still, the Brazilian FA is unlikely to recognize the accomplishment owing to a controversy about how many goals Pele truly scored.
