Pele Wishes Neymar To lead Brazil at World Cup

Brasília (April 17, 2018): One of the all-time great, legend Pele is optimistic about young Brazilian star Neymar Jr. to lead the team in World Cup, Russia, international media reports.

The 77-year-old, who has been in ailing health recently, put his faith in Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar’s ability to recover from a fractured foot in time to lead Brazil to a possible sixth global football title.“We don’t know exactly what is going to happen, but I think for the World Cup he’s going to be in shape because his injury is not so bad,” said Pele, the only person to have won the World Cup three times as a player.

“I wish he has the same luck I had in the World Cup.”PSG’s Neymar, the world´s most expensive player, has not played since breaking a metatarsal bone in his right foot on February 25 in a Ligue 1 match against Marseille.

He said last week he is still recovering following surgery but expects to be fit in time for the World Cup from June 14 to July 15.
