What do people expect from Neymar? Not much, just lead Brasil to victory on home soil for the first time ever, become the greatest player at the greatest club in history, and score several goals a game with mindboggling skill. Most players would turn into trembling puddles. Neymar? He’s laughing with his crew, like ‘That’s it?’
The skinny kid from Mogi das Cruzes, the prodigy from São Paulo, is now football’s brilliant future, but you’d never know it from the tilt of his hat and the smile on his face. No pressure, no stress. He was born for this. Don’t believe it? Just watch.
