Ronaldo Gives Bold Claim About Neymar, Brazil National Team at the World Cup

The 2022 FIFA World Cup would mark 20 years since the last time the Brazil national team last lifted the trophy, and as a result, there is plenty of pressure on Neymar Jr. and his teammates to win it this year in Qatar. 

One of the players on the 2002 World Cup-winning team was Ronaldo, who spoke with O Dia during an event to honor the 20th anniversary of the team. The former striker gave his thoughts on the current team, hoping to end their two-decade drought. 

Ronaldo stated that if Neymar arrives in good shape for the World Cup later this year, Brazil will have a great chance of winning its sixth championship. 

“I think the Seleção arrives as a favorite, and I think that if Neymar arrives 100% physically, we’ll have great chances to be champions,” Ronaldo said.

Furthermore, the former Real Madrid man also discussed the rumors about the 30-year-old’s future at Paris Saint-Germain. The Brazil international has been linked to a move away from the French capital, with the Premier League being his likely destination. 

“I don’t really know what’s happening in this situation. I don’t believe PSG will give him up. Anyway, Neymar is a star, and he won’t have a problem finding a club for him,” Ronaldo added.
