This past Monday, Brazil triumphed in a victory against Cameroon to secure their spot in the final 16 matchup of the FIFA World Cup. It seems to be all thanks to player wearing #10, Neymar, who has scored a resounding 4 goals since stepping on the world stage. This feat has only been matched by Lionel Messi as his competing contender for goal leader.
In an interview with Neymar, hosted by the AP, the star player claims that, “All I want to do is play football and help my teammates and my team.” It’s astonishing to see the calm and humble attributes of the up-and-coming superstar displayed during such a stressful time. Despite being a team player, Neymar leads the team to greatness, not just through the goals he makes, but with his creativeness on the field. During the game against Croatia, he created a two-on-one strategy against a defender by passing to himself and scoring the game winning goal.
It has been a long road for Neymar. Having a shaky start with the team, he only proved his worth after winning last year’s Confederations Cup and voted the competition’s best player. Neymar is just a player who started out playing soccer as a kid, and worked hard enough to join a national team at the age of 17. Still at the tender age of 21, he is living his dream and that’s why he Fits the Mark.
