While other teams have been stressing and competing in World Cup qualifiers, the Brazilian squad has been playing friendlies. As the host nation of the 2014 World Cup they get an automatic berth. Brazilian superstar Neymar says they take the friendlies seriously though.
“We’re playing all the friendlies as if they were the final of the World Cup. For everyone it’s like a cup final, we always play to win,” Neymar said, via ESPN FC. “The aim is to win the World Cup. We know that the pressure is very big, that we’re practically obliged to win it, but we also know that it is difficult and we are working hard to try and achieve our dream.”
AC Milan striker Robinho agrees, an suggests that players are still playing for something; a spot on the World Cup squad.
“There are only a few games left ahead of the World Cup. Playing in the tournament is my main objective so I have to face every match as if it’s the last one. Now, we have to play Honduras and I have a deep respect for them.”
