Brasilia: Brazil superstar Neymar said on Thursday that he was not concerned about having gone nine matches without scoring, as he prepares to spearhead the host country's challenge at the Confederations Cup.

The 21-year-old, who recently agreed to join Barcelona, will be the main attraction when Brazil kick off the competition against Japan on Saturday, but he says he will be purely focused on helping the team.

"Regardless of whether or not I score goals, which doesn't mean anything, I'm proud to be with the Brazilian squad," he said during a press conference.
