Ahead of his 100th game with Brazil, Neymar said he still deserves special treatment in the national team despite never having won a major title in his nine years wearing the famous yellow shirt.

The 27-year-old forward will reach the century mark in a friendly against Senegal in Singapore on Thursday.

At a news conference on the eve of the game, he defended his status as the team's biggest star even though Brazil won this summer's Copa America without him.

Neymar also said he continued to dream "of winning a World Cup" and would give his club, Paris-Saint Germain, "100 percent so we can be successful, so we can win great things."
