World Cup: Unbelievable, I don’t know how he does it – Gary Neville hails Brazil star

Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has heaped praises on Chelsea centre-back, Thiago Silva, following his impressive display in Brazil’s World Cup 1-0 win over Switzerland on Tuesday.

Silva put in a brilliant performance as a late goal from Casemiro gave Brazil the victory over Switzerland.

The result means Brazil are now through to the World Cup round of 16 with a game in hand.

“I don’t know how Thiago Silva, at his age, is still pushing up that pitch,” Neville told ITV after Brazil defeated Switzerland.

“I think back at my career, to get in front of your forward all the time, to try and win it, is one of the hardest that you try and do – he is still doing that late into his thirties – it is unbelievable.”

Silva has 111 appearances for Brazil so far.

He is currently Brazil’s fifth most-capped player of all time, behind the likes of Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Dani Alves and Neymar.
