Neymar: World Cup Is Dream Come True

Barcelona record-signing, Neymar, has described his call-up for Luiz Felipe Scolari’s 23-man Brazil squad a dream come true.

The 22-year-old has struggled to adapt in Spain this year, but was the standout player at the 2013 Confederations Cup and has the full backing from his national team coach.

"A dream I've had since a kid has come true. I've always chased after my dreams and this has always been one of my biggest. The time has come to represent not just my family, but all of Brazil", Neymar said on social networks.

Neymar was in Carlos Dunga’s provisional squad for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but failed to make the final 23-man squad which traveled to South Africa.

"Trust me when I say this is one of the happiest days of my life. I'm excited, apprehensive and nervous. I can't wait for it to arrive", he added.

Scolari confirmed that his Selecao team will be built around Neymar, whom he wants to play with ‘greater responsibility’ but also 'greater freedom' than at his club.

"Neymar is set to be part of a team that will often play for him, but he'll sometimes have to play for that team", said the Brazil boss at the squad announcement on Wednesday.

Neymar is currently recovering from his recent foot injury, but Scolari has no fears that his superstar will hit form at the right time.
