The star, Neymar Jr., was deeply saddened by Brazil’s loss to Croatia on penalties in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup and his exit from the tournament.
Neymar said in statements published by the Spanish newspaper Marca: “It is time to go back to our house and cry and tears. It is an unbelievable nightmare.”
The Paris Saint-Germain player shocked the Brazilian fans after he indicated that he might retire from international football, indicating that the World Cup might be his last tournament with the “Seleção”.
He continued, “This defeat will hurt us for a long time, so I am very sad. I thank the Brazilian fans for their support, but unfortunately, we were not able to make our dreams come true, but that is part of football.”
He indicated that he was scheduled to take the fifth penalty kick, explaining that he would not have changed the result if the order of the kickers had been changed.
