The Incredible Feat Neymar Reached in Brazil’s World Cup Defeat vs. Croatia

Neymar’s aspirations of leading Brazil to triumph at the 2022 FIFA World Cup came to an end on Friday, as the Croatia national team sent the CONMEBOL side home via a penalty shootout win. At the least, Neymar managed to make history in the World Cup knockout stage match.

Neymar scored Brazil’s lone goal of the contest, as he finished off a keen shot attempt in the first extra time period to provide the Selecao with a 1-0 lead. With the goal, the Paris Saint-Germain star joined Ronaldo to become the only Brazilian players ever to score at least two goals at three different World Cups.

Neymar scored a goal, created one goal-scoring chance, and won eight ground duels during his time on the pitch against Croatia.

Neymar will now look ahead to the second half of PSG’s season. The reigning Ligue 1 champions will return to official action later in the month with a league home fixture against Strasbourg.
