Rio de Janeiro:

Brazilian football legend Ronaldo has urged rising star Neymar to ignore growing expectations in the lead up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Himself a victim of a panic attack the night before Brazil's 1998 World Cup final loss to France, Ronaldo warned of the danger of allowing outside pressure to affect his performance on the pitch, reports Xinhua.

"If I could give him one piece of advice it would be to not pay too much attention to what people are saying regarding the World Cup," Ronaldo told Brazilian television network Globo Sunday night.

"He should concentrate on training hard and enjoying his football. That will go a long way to helping Brazil win the tournament," he added.
