Brazil striker Neymar has admitted that he is looking to help ‘fulfil the dreams of all Brazilians’ by helping his country win the World Cup, the Guardian has reported.

Neymar will take to the field at the Arena de Sao Paulo on Thursday evening as his side take on Croatia in the opening match of the tournament. Brazil are among the favourites, having showed fine form at the 2013 Confederations Cup, which they won on home soil.


Much of Brazil is pinning its hopes on Neymar to produce a number of quality performances at the World Cup, and while the Barcelona man admits he in anxious, he believes that winning the competition should be the only objective for the five-time champions.


Speaking in a press conference alongside manager Luiz Felipe Scolari, Neymar echoed the words of his boss, saying: “As Mr Scolari has said, the time has arrived, that all Brazilians and I think the whole world was waiting for. And we the players hope that the last day goes by very quickly.


‘I am anxious, of course. But also I’m extremely happy of being where I am today. So I really hope I can help my team in the best possible way to fulfil the dream of us players, Brazilians, to win the World Cup.”
