Neymar can't wait to rock the latest Brazilian jersey at the 2018 World Cup in Russia as the PSG star is already in the mood of the game despite being down with an injury.

The PSG football aficionado treated his 86 million Instagram followers with a picture of himself rocking the new jersey and left an emotional caption on the post.

"Every time that I wear this jersey I remember all the amazing players that got to the pitch with it. It was inspired by them that I also got here, and I hope I can do the same with the next generation to come. Brasileiragem has a new uniform! And it's dope. Can’t wait to go back and have the honor to wear it," Neymar wrote.

The jersey as we can see is similar to the Samba Gold colour the South Americans donned in Mexico 1970 and the PSG star will be hoping the new jersey will bring the Selecao the same luck in this summer as they target an unprecedented sixth World Cup.

Neymar will be expected to race against time to get fit for the world showpiece after spraining his ankle last month.
