Raphinha defends the ’10’ from criticism “The biggest mistake in Neymar’s career is being born Brazilian”

The victory of the Brazilian team (2-0) over Serbia on the first day of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar left a bittersweet taste. Neymar was injured after 80 minutes and then it was confirmed that he is suffering from a sprained right ankle, which is why he will miss the remainder of the group stage.

Upon learning of this news, the PSG player has begun to receive criticism from a sector of the ‘Canarinha’ fans who claimed that he lacked commitment to the team. However, striker Raphinha came to his defense.

Through his stories on his Instagram account, the attacker, who plays for Barcelona, ​​shared a post on a page in which a comparison is made between Neymar, Messi and Cristiano. The Barça footballer considers that unlike the ‘Flea’ and the ‘Comandante’, the Brazilian ’10’ does not receive the encouragement of the ‘Scratch’ fans.

“Argentina fans treat Messi like a God. Portugal fans treat Cristiano Ronaldo like a King. The Brazilian fans expect Neymar to break his leg. How sad. The biggest mistake in Neymar’s career is being born Brazilian, this country doesn’t deserve his talent or his football.”it reads.

Who will replace Neymar?

Tite has several alternatives for them to enter through the ‘Canarinha’ figure. Rodrygo acts in the same position as Neymar and is the first alternative. He can also overtake Lucas Paquetá on that side of the court. Thus, Bruno Guimaraes or Fred would enter the middle sector to partner with Casemiro.

Meanwhile, Danilo’s natural replacement is the experienced Dani Alves. Although the friendly matches, the Brazil coach used Eder Militao covering the right wing and taking him out of his central position.
