Brazillian superstar and the captain has made it official according to kickoff that the 2022 Qatar FIFA world cup will be his last in his thriving career, stating that he is not sure if he will still be in the right state of mind to continue playing football at that higher level.
Neymar made his international debut at 18 years old on the 10th of August 2010 against The United States of America in a friendly game, where he scored his first international goal in a 2-0 victory in favour of Brazil.
So he has played international football for the past 11 years counting this year, so you can understand his recent sentiments of quitting and he has managed to score 69 goals in 144 international games.
The Paris Saint Germain star is just eight(8) goals away from equalling the feat of being the Brazil national team all-time top goalscorer, which is currently being held by the legendary Pepe as reported on www.goal.com.
