Neymar not concerned by booking

Brazil forward Neymar is unconcerned by the possibility of a one-game suspension at this summer's World Cup.

Neymar has insisted that his booking in Brazil's World Cup opener against Croatia on Thursday will not affect him at this summer's tournament.

The Barcelona forward, who scored twice in the 3-1 win over the European side, picked up a yellow card in the first period following an elbow on Luka Modric.

Another booking before the quarter-finals would equal a one-game ban, but the 22-year-old has insisted that his focus will not be on a possible suspension.

"I don't care. I'll play to win the second game," he told AS.

"I'll play well and I don't care if I miss one game because of a card. It's not what I wanted but that's it. I'll play a normal game. If I start thinking about it, it will be worse."

Brazil face Mexico on Tuesday evening.
