It's going to be a big summer for fans of the Brazil national football team. Not only is Brazil hosting the World Cup this year for the first time since 1950, no less but this summer also could be Brazil's shot at securing an unprecedented sixth World Cup title. If that is going to happen, then it will be partially because of Neymar da Silva Santos Junior, or Neymar, one of Brazil's strongest players and a firm fixture on the country's squad for the World Cup. In fact, Neymar is so big that the Neymar 10 Brazil 2014 World Cup home jersey has become an incredibly popular product at Soccer Box.

Neymar 10 Brazil 2014 World Cup Home Shirt

That's right: interspersed with a more standard collection of Brazil football shirts this year are jerseys and shirts meant to support Neymar specifically. The winger/forward is only 22 years old, but his jersey will undoubtedly be worn by hundreds of thousands of Brazilian soccer fans this summer if not millions.

Don't believe us? Simply flip on your television set during a Brazil home match at the World Cup next week, and count the number of yellow and green shirts you see with the number 10 emblazoned on the back. Every one of those is a Neymar 10 Brazil 2014 World Cup home jersey, and all of them are saying the same thing: we have faith in you, Neymar!

A Green Player

Faith will have a lot to do with whether or not Neymar puts forth a performance worthy of his mountainous hype. Despite the young player's global fame, he has only had his own Brazil football shirts for a few years now. In fact, he will play his very first World Cup matches this summer on his home country's soil.

In other words, Neymar is still a green player on the global stage, even though he's already made a name for himself playing club football with Santos and Barcelona. He also won the Golden Ball for the best player in the tournament at last year's Confederation's Cup a tournament that also took place in Brazil.

The Confederation's Cup: A World Cup Predictor?

The Confederation's Cup could actually end up being a decent predictor for what happens in Brazil this summer, partially because it showed how this current Brazil squad Neymar specifically played with the cheers of their country roaring in the background. And frankly, Brazil was unstoppable at the Confederation's Cup, beating heavyweight teams like Italy, Uruguay, and Spain to claim the title.

Granted, the Confederation's Cup was also a considerably smaller tournament than the World Cup will be, but that also means that the number of people cheering the Brazil players forward and pushing their adrenaline to a fever pitch will also be magnified. If the 2013 Brazil team was able to beat Spain the current reigning World Cup champion and this year's likely number 1 seed then why can't the 2014 squad do the same?

The Best Ever

If Brazil can indeed topple Spain, then there is a good chance the team can go all the way to the finals and beyond this summer especially with the stands loaded with adoring fans in Brazil football shirts. The key to Brazil winning could easily be Neymar, whose Golden Ball performance at the Confederation's Cup could be repeated at the World Cup for yet another "best player" award.

He's certainly already earned that title from many soccer experts. Famed Brazil veteran Pele once said that Neymar would go on to be the best player in the world, and that he was even better than Lionel Messi the Argentine star who has himself been called one of the greatest football players in history. If Neymar can help Brazil score a sixth World Cup title, then he might just fulfill Pele's prediction.

Do you think Neymar is the greatest player in history, and do you think he has what it takes to lead Brazil to a victory at home this summer? Stop by Soccer Box today, pick up a Neymar 10 Brazil 2014 World Cup home jersey, and get ready to cheer for that result!
