Brazil stars were left battling for breath and using breathing devices for recuperation after a tiresome 0-0 draw with Bolivia on a pitch right around 12,000ft above sea level.
The World Cup qualifier was played at the once-restricted Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz, which remains at an altitude of 11,932ft in burning hot conditions that Neymar later portrayed as ‘inhumane’.
After the match, the Brazil star stated: it’s Inhumane to play in such conditions, field, height, ball… everything.
‘But we were glad for the performance of the team even with these conditions!’
Home goalkeeper Carlos Lampe was in extraordinary in form to disappoint the five-times World Cup holders.
Brazil have already qualified for next year’s finals in Russia while second-bottom Bolivia are out of the running for one of South America’s qualifying places.
