Pique and Neymar go one-on-one in interview

Pique makes debut as journalist by interviewing Neymar

December 27, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The former team-mates shared their memories about past World Cups and even tried to 'negotiate' the final match between Spain and Brazil.

Gerard Piqué had his first crack at becoming a journalist, and he chose Neymar for his first interview.

In a video published by The Players' Tribune, Neymar and his former team-mate discussed a variety of topics, which went from each of their first memories of a World Cup to their chances of meeting in the 2018 World Cup final.

Regarding the first subject, Neymar admitted that Ronaldo had a huge influence in Brazilian kids, which made him replicate his iconic haircut from the 2002 World Cup final.

Later, Neymar recalled his feelings after the 2014 World Cup. The Brazilian ace admitted that his playing career was in jeopardy after that tackle by Camilo Zúñiga, which he says, made him lose sensations in the lower part of his body.

"Marcelo was beside me and I tried to move, but it really hurt. I couldn't move or feel my legs, I started crying and I got scared. When I got to the hospital, they told me they had good and bad news for me. The bad news had to do with the World Cup, it was over for me, but the good news came when they told me I would recover and my playing career wouldn't be over," Neymar recalled.

The pair analyzed how the World Cup could end with either France, Brazil, Germany, Spain or Argentina winning the title. Furthermore, both footballers believe that Iceland will be the tournament's sensation.
