In an interview with Youtuber Casimiro Miguel, Neymar returned to this pain, which invaded him when Marquinhos missed his penalty.

” It was horrible “

I cried for about five days in a row. It really hurts to see your dream come out of nowhere like it happened. I would much rather not have scored the goal, and lost on penalties than to have scored the goal, taken the draw and lost on penalties. It was like a funeral wake, one weeping on one side, the other weeping on the other. Completely heavy atmosphere. It was awful, a feeling that I don’t want to relive ” told Neymar. An experience so painful, that he thought about retiring from international football.

But at 31, the player wants to give himself the means to realize his dreams and is already planning for the next edition. “ After the World Cup, honestly, I didn’t want to go back. But I reconsidered. Because I’m very hungry. After the Cup, I didn’t want to endure the pain of losing, to see my family suffer, it weighs heavily. But they will still have to put up with that (laughs). It will be fine, it must be fine ” has warned Neymar.
