ᑕ❶ᑐ Neymar’s incredible feat in Brazil and World Cup loss to Croatia

Neymar’s aspirations to lead Brazil to triumph at the 2022 FIFA World Cup came to an end on Friday, only for the Croatia national team to send the CONMEBOL side home via a penalty shootout victory . At least Neymar managed to make history in the World Cup knockout game.

Neymar scored Brazil’s only goal of the contest, as he completed a fierce shot attempt in the first period of extra time to give the Selecao a 1-0 lead. With this goal, the Paris Saint-Germain star joined Ronaldo in becoming the only Brazilian player to score at least two goals in three different World Cups.

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

Neymar and his tournament now towards the second part of the PSG season. The reigning Ligue 1 champions will return to official action later in the month with a home game against Strasbourg.
