Neymar 'will do the impossible' to win World Cup

Neymar is ready to go to 'impossible' lengths to win the World Cup with Brazil at Russia 2018.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward is working his way back to full fitness alongside his international team-mates after suffering a broken metatarsal at the end of February.

Over the weekend, the 26-year-old told reporters of his determination to overcome fears of his body breaking down after three months out and he sounded a similar tone in an Instagram post that showed him looking longingly at the World Cup trophy in a display case.

"The walk began and I'm going to meet you," Neymar wrote.

"I know that I will encounter many difficulties but I will do the impossible to have you in my hands.

"Towards glory, towards Hexa [Brazil's sixth title]!!"
