Neymar Makes Stunning Statement About His Friendship With Messi Ahead of Copa America Final

Neymar, a Brazilian player, has stated that his relationship with Lionel Messi would be put on hold while the two great footballers prepare to face off in the Copa America final.

As he prepares to meet Messi in the Maracana in the early hours of Sunday morning, the Paris Saint-German star says there will be no place for nostalgia. Both players are looking for their first Copa America victory.

While many fans would want to see Messi, perhaps the greatest footballer of all time, win a big trophy at the Maracana on Sunday morning, Neymar can't see why any Brazilian would support Argentina over their own country.

Both Neymar and Lionel Messi have had fantastic Copa campaigns thus far, but only one can win in the Estadio Maracana.

It's no exaggeration to suggest that their last encounter is the most important in terms of pure star power since Zidane and Ronaldo faced off in the 1998 World Cup.
