Superstar Neymar, who played below expectation in Russia 2018, has said that Brazil’s World Cup quarterfinal loss to Belgium is the saddest moment of his career.
In his first social media comments following the defeat, Neymar posted a message on his Instagram account, saying: “I can say that it is the saddest moment of my career.
“The pain is very great because we knew we could get there, we knew we had the conditions to go further, to make history, but it was not this time.”
“But it was not this time. It’s hard to find the strength to play soccer again, but I’m sure God will give me strength enough to face anything, so I’ll never stop thanking God, even in defeat … because I know that your way is much better than mine I’m very happy to be part of this team, I’m proud of all, interrupted our dream but they didn’t get it out of our head and neither of our hearts.”
