Neymar: Seleção were not good enough
Seleção star Neymar has admitted that they were not good enough to beat Switzerland as they crumbled to a 1-0 defeat in Basel.
A Dani Alves own goal put paid to Brazil's hopes of a win and Neymar believes the performance wasn't up to scratch.
The former Santos forward also criticised the rough treatment handed to him by the Swiss defenders, having himself escaped with a booking for a lunge on Stephan Lichtsteiner.
"We’re only just getting back to work now,” stated the 21-year-old. "Our players are in pre-season and it’s hard to get up to speed so quickly."
But the Barcelona star was optimistic about their chances in future matches and claimed that there is unity in the squad.
"It was great to reconnect with everyone. I am sure we will improve in the coming matches," Neymar added.
The Seleção will now continue to prepare for the upcoming 2014 World Cup with a series of friendlies over the new season.
