Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar is not going to deny that he’s long way to go from being at 100 percent following his fractured right foot surgery.
However, Neymar boldly declares that he will be fit and ready to play for Brazil in the upcoming World Cup in Russia.
The Brazilian forward said: “I’m not yet at 100 per cent. That will come with time. I’m still a bit scared of going all out, but there are still several days before our start. It’s going to take a bit more time for this fear to go away, but I’m ready to play. Nothing can stop me from doing so,”
Going back, Neymar, who joined PSG for a world record fee of €222 million last summer, got injured last February in a league game against Marseille. (Don’t forget to check 12BET for the best Free Betting Tips)
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old striker just recently returned to the training and will continue participating in a national team practice to prepare for World Cup.
“I feel good physically. My foot is fine. Of course I have to adjust to certain things. I’m feeling a bit of discomfort but it’s not going to stop me from playing.” Neymar added
During 2014 World Cup, Neymar has been ruled out due to back injury that led to Brazil’s humiliating 1-7 loss to Germany in the semifinals as he hopes it won’t happen again. (Sign Up now for more updated sports news and events)
