The world’s most expensive footballer ever, Neymar, is in a battle to get himself fit for the World Cup which begins in just under a month. The 26-year-old forward suffered a metatarsal injury in February which required surgery, and he hasn’t played any football since then. Neymar has recently spoken to journalists and said, “this is a difficult time, one of the most difficult I have faced”.

Perhaps Brazil’s opponents will be hoping he isn’t fit in time to face them, but for the rest of the footballing world, we all want to see Neymar on the biggest football stage of them all! We hope he will be fit to play in Russia.

Whether he will be fit or not, sports betters have undoubtedly seen Neymar’s name all over the World Cup betting markets. In this article we will look at a number of the Neymar World Cup odds.
