Neymar, Brazil head home early – again: Brazil came to Russia with a strong team, a well-liked coach and a great star. Fans thought the Selecao would finally end its World Cup title drought.
But again the five-time world champions are leaving empty handed, unable to make it to the semifinals four years after that humiliating 7-1 loss to Germany at its home World Cup.
It was a bad blow for the Brazilians.
“I can say this is the saddest moment of my career,” said Neymar on Instagram.
