With an eye-catching message, Neymar emphasizes the importance of showcasing their exceptional talents for their country just as they do for their respective clubs.

The PSG star acknowledges the undeniable talent possessed by African players, but he urges them to bring that same level of skill and dedication to their national teams.

Drawing a comparison to the success of Brazil, a nation with five World Cup titles, the Brazilian forward highlights the passion and unity displayed by South American and European teams, who consistently exhibit their fervor for national pride.

The remark comes as a surprise, considering that many of the best African players currently ply their trade in top European clubs.

Neymar, himself a renowned figure in the sport, recognizes the immense potential within African football but encourages players to go beyond their club commitments and channel their abilities towards lifting their national teams to new heights.

The former Barcelona star was quoted by Frank Khalid, saying;

African Players have talent, but they only show it to their respective clubs, not for their respective countries. This is why Brazil has 5 World Cups, because African players don’t have a lot of passion to represent their countries like South American teams and the Europeans. It’s surprising because the best African players play in best clubs in Europe.” – he said

Neymar’s words serve as a call to action for Nigerian and African players and a reminder of the impact they can make on the international stage.

By harnessing their club-level brilliance and infusing it with a strong sense of patriotism, the Super Eagles have the opportunity to redefine African football and become a force to be reckoned with in global competitions.

As the football world eagerly awaits the response from Nigerian players, fans will surely hope to witness a newfound determination and passion, both on and off the pitch.
