The Selecao are in pole position to qualify for next year's tournament as they lead the South American standings with nine wins from 10 matches.

Neymar has won an Olympic gold medal with Brazil's U23 side, but has never won a major trophy with the senior national side, and it seems the next World Cup will be his final chance to do so.

"I think it's my last World Cup," Neymar said in DAZN's exclusive new documentary, Neymar & The Line Of Kings, as per Goal.

"I see it as my last because I don't know if I have the strength of mind to deal with football any more.

"So I'll do everything to turn up well, do everything to win with my country, to realise my greatest dream since I was little. And I hope I can do it."

Since making his Brazil debut in 2010 as an 18-year-old, Neymar has registered 69 goals in 113 appearances, and only needs nine more strikes to overtake Pele as the Selecao's all-time leading scorer.
