Brazilian football star Neymar held a press conference in the city of Belem ahead of the country's match against Bolivia, in Brazil's debut in the South American qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup.

During the conference, he answered a question saying: "It's hard to answer this question, what this team means. It means a lot. For everyone here, Pelé is the unanimous king of football, imagine beating someone at that. Something you'll never imagine in your life. I can tell you that I'm going to beat him."

About the Saudi team, he said: "From the names in the Saudi league today, I don't know if it's better than the French league. But my head has to be right, I have to be happy."

"Diniz is a guy who does a completely different job to anything I've ever seen. It's a different type of football, he has a very different mentality to the coaches I've had. The other managers I've had did almost the same things, Diniz doesn't, he likes to reinvent football, he likes to give you options. He's a very interesting guy," he added.
