The entire country of Brazil is understandably still reeling from receiving the news that star forward, Neymar, will be missing the remainder of the World Cup. However, he’s recorded this message intended for his teammates & country, perhaps to lift their spirits at what could be a huge blow for the Brazilians:
The video is recorded in Portuguese, so courtesy of Bleacher Report, here is your English translation:
I’m certain that my team mates will do everything possible so that my dream, which is to be a champion, comes true.
My dream was also to play in a World Cup final but this time it didn’t work out.
But God willing, they’re going to win this, they’re going to be champions, and I’m going to be by their side, with them. And all us Brazilians are going to be celebrating.
Winning the World Cup obviously is no easy road for any of the four remaining teams, but losing such an important piece of the starting roster will only make reaching the mountaintop that much harder for host Brazil.
