The Paris Saint-Germain forward is likely to miss the rest of the season through an injury he picked up in March, but is expected to be fully fit for the Selecao head of the World Cup in June.

The 26-year-old was recently asked to name a few players he feels has the ability to the light up the tournament in Russia, but failed to mention his former teammate Messi and Real Madrid talisman Ronaldo.

"I believe that Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus can make a difference, I hope they do," Neymar told LiveSoccer.

"Salah is a player that doesn't belong to a title contender, but I believe he'll do a good job.

"There are others like Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Luis Suarez who could get their teams to the next level."

Neymar is currently in Brazil recovering from his injury, which cut short a sublime season for the 26-year-old.
