No Neymar No Problem, There Is A New King In Brazil

After collecting two yellow cards in his last two games for Brazil,Neymar was suspended as his side faced off with Venezuela for a spot in the 2022 world cup tournament.We all thought without their superstar they would lose but no,a new king ascended to Neymar's throne and led Brazil to victory.Paris Saint Germain defender Marquinos took charge scoring the opening goal.He then provided a game winning assist to Antony in the 90th minute to see Brazil come from one goal down to win by three goals.Not only was he great in attack but he was also solid in the defence.He won all the four aerial duels,made three key tackles,four interceptions and made two clearances from their penalty box.His man of the match performance was enough to see Brazil go top of the South American world cup qualifying charts.He also proved he has what it takes to lead his side in Neymar's absence.
