With the FIFA World Cup 2022 being just days away, teams are getting ready for the marquee tournament. But the Brazilian team has opted for an incredible pre-World Cup campaign where they bring back their Joga Bonito philosophy of loving and enjoying football. During their camp, the Seleção Canarinha took part in a TV programme which produced a magical moment involving Neymar Jr. 

During the segment of the Domingão com Huck" ("Sunday with Huck") — a popular show hosted by Luciano Huck, the Brazilian team participated in multiple football-related challenges. In the show, Neymar was asked to control a football which is dropped from a height of 115 feet. 

The PSG star looked slightly confused as he glanced at the drone holding the ball. But soon, Menino composed himself and comfortably managed to bring the ball down with two incredible touches. As the ball stopped on the ground with ease, all the other Brazil players ran towards Neymar and celebrated the moment. 

The Seleção Canarinha are considered favourites for the tournament as they have a brilliant squad with the right mix of youth and experience. Hence this squad includes many senior players who could be playing their last World Cup. Neymar wasn’t set to be part of this group but ahead of the tournament, he stated otherwise. 

Neymar said, “I can't guarantee that I'll play another [World] Cup. I honestly don't know. I'll play like it's the last. Maybe I'll play another one, maybe not. It depends. There's going to be a coaching change and I don't know if that coach will like me.”
