Brazil World Cup winner Cafu: Neymar will fight back

Brazil World Cup winner Marcos Cafu believes PSG star Neymar had a disappointing World Cup.

But he refuses to criticise the former Barcelona star.

"We all expected a lot from him, because Neymar is a fantastic player and we expected different things from him on the pitch," he said.

"That is normal and that is why the criticism has fallen on him for everything that happened.

"His performance wasn't what we expected, it was a little less than what people expect from a fantastic player.

"Neymar is the best Brazilian player of recent times, but because of 30 minutes we question everything that Neymar has done throughout his career.

"The World Cup is like that, it doesn't forgive, but he is smart and he will surely recover."
