Brazil forward Neymar throws shade at African players in Europe

Neymar Jr, the Paris Saint-Germain forward, recently made comments about African players’ dedication to their national teams.

While acknowledging the talent that African players possess, he reportedly stated that they tend to show it more for their clubs than for their countries.

This has been a point of criticism for the Nigerian Super Eagles, who have performed better for their clubs than in international tournaments.

Neymar emphasized the importance of national team accomplishments, citing Brazil’s five World Cup victories as an example of the enthusiasm shown by South American and European players for their respective countries.

However, he suggested that African players often fall short in this regard.

These remarks raise concerns about the complexities of international football and the challenges that African players face in balancing club and national team responsibilities.

While comparing African players with Brazil, Neymar’s comments highlight the need for a deeper understanding of the factors that influence player choices regarding national team involvement.
