Neymar Breaks Silence On Brazil's World Cup Exit, Issues Emotional Message

Neymar has finally reacted to Brazil exiting the 2018 World Cup.

Brazil entered the tournament as favourites. But the five-time winners have departed Russia following defeat to Belgium in the quarter-finals.

Belgium secured passage to the semi-final after beating Brazil 2-1 which included a stunning strike from Kevin De Bruyne.

Brazil had pinned their hopes on Neymar to mastermind World Cup glory. Though the Paris Saint-Germain ace failed to deliver, scoring just two goals.

He'll be more remembered for his theatrical diving than his silky skills. He's been subject to intense criticism from fans, experts - you name it, for feigning injuries and play acting.

A day removed from Brazil being dumped out, Neymar has broken his silence by reacting on social media.

"I can say that it is the saddest moment of my career," he posted on Instagram.

Neymar added: "The pain is very great because we knew we could get there, we knew we had the conditions to go further, to make history... but it was not this time.

"Difficult to find the strength to want to play football again, but I'm sure God will give me enough strength to face anything.

"So I'll never stop thanking God, even in defeat... because I know that your way is much better than mine.

"Very happy to be part of this team, I am proud of all, interrupted our dream but did not take away from our head nor from our hearts."

The 26-year-old will have a quick break before returning to his club.

While he's employed by PSG, the talented attacker remains under mounting transfer speculation.

He continues to be heavily linked with a move away from the French capital.
