Neymar has admitted that next year's FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will be his last, as the strain of the game has taken its toll on the Brazilian's body and mind.
"I think it's my last world cup," said Neymar who scored 69 goals in 113 international matches for Brazil.
"I see it as my last because I don't know if I have the strength of mind to deal with football anymore, so I'll do everything to turn up well do everything to win with my country to realize my greatest dream since I was little and I hope I can do it," he added.
Neymar will be 34 in 2026 when the USA, Canada, and Mexico will host the biggest competition in the world.
Aside from the Olympic gold, he won at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Neymar's only trophy with the national team came in 2013 when Brazil lifted the Confederation Cup.
