William: Ronaldo And Messi Also Fails To Perform Internationally
The Brazilian forward said “I don’t think that the problem with the Brazil national team is the players. It’s not just Neymar; there are many high quality players so I don’t know why they are always saying that we depend on Neymar.”

“Of course Neymar is a great player — he is a key man for the Selecao right now — but I think we have players of great quality and, if a player sometimes does not perform the same way he does for his club. I think it’s natural because, with our clubs we are used to playing with our team-mates who are always with us, training day by day and playing every week.”

Brazilian coach Dunga had great start with his squad after returning as coach of the national side, but failed to win the first title i.e. Copa America 2015. Brazil got eliminated in quarter final round against Uruguay. Later William said
“This is normal. It’s like this with Messi in Argentina, with Cristiano Ronaldo in the Portugal team. All the big players sometimes fail to perform in their national team as they do for their clubs because they do not get so long to train together but I think the Brazilian team is well served for players. We are not lacking for quality players.”
