Neymar reiterates desire to work with Guardiola

All eyes are on Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar as he steps up preparations for Russian Federation 2018 alongside his global colleagues, despite being ruled out of domestic action with a broken metatarsal since the end of February.

Brazil star Neymar has revealed that he has to overcome a psychological barrier ahead of the World Cup after suffering a broken metatarsal playing for Paris Saint-Germain in February.

But Neymar says that he would love to have the opportunity to link up with the Catalan in the future. But that comes with time.

Neymar, 22, joined PSG for a world-record €222 million last summer from Barcelona - but only arrived at Camp Nou 12 months after Guardiola had left the club in 2012. "Let's take it easy, there are still many days until the (World Cup) opener and I will be 100 per cent then".

After a week of training in Brazil, the national team on Sunday travelled to London for 12 days of preparation at Tottenham, as well as to play friendlies against Croatia in Liverpool (June 3) and Austria in Vienna (June 10), before heading to Russian Federation for the tourney.

The Vegas Golden Knights' incredible inaugural season isn't slowing down in the Stanley Cup Final. The Caps came right back, though, scoring two goals to claim their first lead of the series.

"I'm still a bit scared of going all out, but there are still several days before our start", Neymar told reporters. Of course I have to adjust to certain things.

"I've been trying to stop him since 2010, always as a right-back". "I hope (the dream) ends with the title".

Brazil's football confederation spokesman Vinicius Rodrigues said coach Tite chose to give the three players more time to rest before they join the squad.

Brazil will stay in London for training until June 8.
