Defender says it's important to take the pressure off their star striker
Teresepolis: Brazil's defender David Luiz admitted that his team faced difficulties against Croatia and Mexico but hoped that they would put up a better show in their last group game against Cameroon today in Brasilia.
It's important to that the other Brazilian players take the pressure off Neymar, felt Luiz. "Neymar is a great player, he rescued this spell of the Brazilian team. He rescued our dream of having a player, who is vying to be the world's best.
But he is a boy, a player who plays for the team, wants to help the team, knows that we depend not only him, we have other great players. He does not have to take the responsibility alone to score in every game," Luiz told Globo Esporte.
