Neymar: I’m in the form of my life

The Brazil captain made it six goals in two games for his country with a double in Istanbul and admits that he could not be happier with his recent performances

Neymar claimed that he is in the form of his life after netting twice in Brazil’s 4-0 friendly win over Turkey on Wednesday evening.

The Selecao skipper opened and closed the scoring in Istanbul to take his international goals tally to 42 in just 59 games.

Given he has also been in fine form for Barcelona of late, netting nine times in nine Liga games, Neymar feels as if he has gone to another level this season.

Indeed, when asked by TV Globo if he is currently enjoying the best form of his career to date, the 22-year-old enthused: “I think so!

“I’m very emotional. It’s another country, another stadium to keep in my heart.

“I didn’t expect this, I couldn’t be happier. But I always want more. I don’t want to remain at this level.”

Neymar also feels that Brazil are a team on the rise again, with the Selecao having won five games on the spin under new coach Dunga, who succeeded Luiz Felipe Scolari at the helm after a desperately disappointing World Cup campaign.

“Things are flowing now,” the attacker explained. “We have great players, not only with the Selecao, but in Brazil as a whole.

“Players keep coming in and out but we never lose rhythm. We were great out there tonight!”

The South American nation will be hoping to make it six wins on the spin when they face Austria in their final Gillette Brasil Global Tour outing of the year, in Vienna, on November 18.
