Brazil forward, Neymar Jr, has admitted he is scared of the 2018 World Cup because of the pressure on him and his team-mates. He is the one who will allow us to achieve our goals, but in the case of a football team and many things, I cannot afford to make some public statements that other players may not be able to take.

'Nobody is as scared as me [about returning],' Neymar told Brazilian station TV Globo.

The world's most expensive player was injured on February 25 playing for PSG against Marseille in the French league.

Months after Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona, rumours of him returning to Spain have started doing the rounds. "I think it's one of the most hard I've ever had, because I'm very close to a dream I have, which is the World Cup", said Neymar, who broke a bone in his neck in the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and missed the semifinal, which the hosts lost, 7-1, to Germany. Thanks to God, I have this new opportunity to become world champion with my country. "It is my goal".

"I started training with the ball, making passes, hitting it", he said in an interview on Facebook with Desimpedidos, the football chat and comedy channel started by former Brazilian great Kaka.

TI Arrested for Drunkenly Trying to Enter His Home, As One Does
The artist tells us the security guard involved in the argument is black, which added to the frustration of the situation. According to officials, the unidentified friend had an outstanding warrant and was placed under arrest.

He was named in Tite's squad for Russian Federation 2018 as expected this week and all eyes will be on Brazil's first pre-World Cup friendly against Croatia on June 3.

There is however more pressing matters at hand for him with the PSG star set to lead Brazil's charge for their sixth World Cup triumph.

A total of €1.645m was raised for the PSG Foundation at Tuesday night's gala dinner at the Parc des Princes, over €1m more than a year ago, according to L'Equipe.

Along with the friendly against the European side, the five-time World Cup winners take on Austria before finally getting their tournament underway against Switzerland on June 17. Their group also includes Costa Rica and Serbia.
