Barcelona forward Neymar vows to "enjoy" the World Cup this summer despite the pressure on his shoulders.

Barcelona forward Neymar has insisted that he will "enjoy" the World Cup this summer despite the pressure on his shoulders.

The 22-year-old is expected to star for Brazil this summer, but injuries and off-the-field issues harmed his club form in the second half of the season.

That said, the attacker is confident that he will thrive under the pressure in his home country.

"It's a dream to be in the World Cup and the pressure is something natural. When I chose to play football, I chose to enjoy it. And that's what I'll do, kick it up at the World Cup," he told Globo.

"When I was three-years-old I wanted to play at a World Cup. I've grown up watching Romario and Ronaldo. It's something I want for myself."

Neymar has scored 30 times in 44 games for his country.
