Neymar is one of the youngest players not only in his club Barcelona but also in the national team of his country Brazil but this has not stopped him from breaking records and being named as the captain of the Brazilian squad.

Despite having more experienced players in the squad of Brazil, Dunga has not been shy in appointing Neymar as the current captain of the team. The star of Barcelona has been active in the international scene as he is a constant starter as well as being awarded with the captain armband during some of the latest friendly matches of Brazil.

The undisputed captain of Brazil is Thiago Silva but the defender has managed to make an appearance in any of the recent friendly matches for his country due to an injury and Neymar was selected as the man to wear the armband and the team in the pitch.

Neymar expressed his satisfaction of being awarded with the captaincy armband of Brazil as he spoke during a press conference and told reporters: ‘’I am still a young leader, I am one of the younger players here but I am really happy. These four years I have been learning so many things, from the first day until today and now I can help where I can when we have new players, to make them feel comfortable. “I think the results here were good. It’s very positive because we had two difficult games but we have won both and so we are very happy.”
