Recent Brazil Friendly – Just another proof that Brazil is dependent on Neymar
It was quite evident that from the Brazil’s friendly against US that Brazil is very much dependent on Neymar. The Brazilian team although was doing well in the first half. But the team was really lifted up with the introduction of Neymar. There are two aspects to this.
Firstly Neymar performs very well individually. He immediately made an impact after coming on pitch as a substitute. He had won a penalty after only 6 minutes of coming on the pitch, which he successfully converted to increase the Brazil’s lead. Then he continued with his typical display of exceptional skills. Dancing around the defense of US and teasing the defenders. Then he calmly scored his 2nd goal in the 66th minute of the game. Neymar’s Individual performance was totally match winning. And it is such performances which Brazil needs to win crunch games.
The second aspect is the effect which Neymar has on his teammates. It seemed like the whole team had a renewed spirit after Neymar came on pitch. The confidence level of the team suddenly increased. And they started making more chances. Neymar’s exceptional skill level and game play gives a boost of confidence to fellow Brazilian players which they lack when Neymar is not on pitch.
It seems as if Brazil’s success will revolve around Neymar’s success in coming years and Brazil is dependent on Neymar.
