Brazil striker, Richarlison has admitted that Neymar will be missed by Brazil in the upcoming international break but also said he believes he can fill in for the PSG star.
Neymar will miss Saturday’s international friendly against Panama and the Czech Republic fixture three days later as he recovers from a metatarsal injury suffered with Paris Saint-Germain in January.
Richarlison said the entire squad know how important he is but himself and teammates will cope.
His words, “I think Neymar is really missed,”
“He is a great player.
“But I’m prepared. Everyone here knows the responsibility. I think if I go to play, I’ll do my best so the national team can win the matches.
“Of course, Neymar makes difficult games easy. I guess we’ll miss him. But let’s fill his absence very well here.”
“Since when I came for the first time, I came with the intention of being a top scorer and making goals in all matches.
“I’m a guy who always seeks the goal. And I was summoned just because I was scoring many goals for my club. I want to continue to score goals. I want to be a top scorer with my national team.”
