World Cup Rodrygo reveals what Neymar told him after Brazil’s 1-0 loss to Cameroon. The forward for Brazil, Rodrygo, has disclosed what teammate Neymar said to him after the Seleço’s recent World Cup loss to Cameroon by a score of 1-0.
In their last group-stage encounter against Cameroon, Rodrygo made his competitive debut.
Tite, Brazil’s manager, decided to start with a bench team because Brazil had already qualified after winning their first two games.
However, a goal by Vincent Aboubakar in stoppage time caused Brazil to lose the game.
After defeating Serbia and Switzerland in their previous two games, Tite’s team still finished first in their World Cup group.
On Monday night, they will play South Korea in the quarterfinal.
After 54 minutes, Rodrygo was substituted, and he said Neymar thanked him and encouraged him to keep playing the way he did against Cameroon.
“Neymar gave me a lot of confidence before the game because he wanted to convey that he was rooting for me. He is a mentor and my hero; it is a privilege for me to play alongside him, the Real Madrid player remarked, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“At the conclusion of the game, he praised me and advised me to carry on like I had been despite the loss. He advised me to put the events in Cameroon behind me and focus on the future instead.
