Brazil’s Neymar is winning everyone over this season with his goals and attitude for PSG. He’s also been injury-free after years of being plagued by ankle, hamstring and foot injuries.

Even though Neymar suffered a small cut in his right knee during Wednesday’s training session, Brazil coach Tite said he was expected to start against Ghana on Friday. Neymar’s work-rate for PSG has been exemplary. He’s fitter than for many years and scoring prolifically, with 11 in 11 games overall.

Will this form continue all the way to the World Cup in Qatar? Brazil fan hope so. Even more so if Neymar enters the tournament in Qatar with the additional psychological boost of being Brazil’s all-time leading scorer. He’s on 74, behind only three-time World Cup winner Pele’s record of 77.
