Gary Neville Finds Thiago Silva Difficult



Gary Neville Finds Thiago Silva Difficult

Manchester United legend, Gary Neville had every bit of admiration for Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva following his exploits with the Brazil team in the Qatar world cup tournament.

Following his superb performance in Tuesday’s 1-0 World Cup victory over Switzerland for Brazil, Chelsea center-back Thiago Silva has received high praise from Manchester United icon Gary Neville.

Silva delivered a superb effort as Brazil defeated Switzerland thanks to a late goal from Casemiro.

Brazil now has a game in hand and will advance to the round of 16 of the World Cup as a result of the outcome.

“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 so far made 111 appearances for Brazil.

He presently holds the fifth-highest total of appearances for Brazil, after only Neymar, Cafu, Roberto Carlos, and Dani Alves.
