Brazil and FC Barcelona's futures have been wagered on 21-year-old Neymar da Silva Santos Jr.
The New York Times reported back in June that FC Barcelona paid Neymar's Brazilian club around $74 million to buy his rights and bring him to La Liga starting next season. Neymar helped Brazil win this summer's prelude to the World Cup, the Confederations Cup.
Can Brazil win next year's WC?
Can he help Barca return to previous form?
