Brazil’s rising football star

Teenage striker hopes to be selected for Brazil’s World Cup team.

As Brazil is set to announce its 23-man squad for the Football World Cup, there is one name that is causing more debate than others.

While some people say that 17-year-old Neymar dos Santos Silva is not experienced enough, everyone seems to agree that he embodies the future of Brazilian football.

The teenage star striker scored five goals in one game earlier this year.

Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from Sao Paulo, where pressure is growing for the Brazilian coach to select Neymar for the team going to South Africa.
