Lionel Messi sends message to Neymar ahead of Copa America final

Lionel Messi singled out Neymar as Brazil’s danger man.

The Barcelona legend will have the opportunity to win a major trophy for his country after booking a spot in the finals of Copa America where they face Brazil.

He and his teammates reached the final following a nerve-wracking penalty shootout against Colombia in the semi-final.

The two South American heavyweights face each other at Maracanã Stadium on Sunday 11th July at 1 AM (BST).

Captain Lionel Messi has warned that it would be tough to beat Brazil but is confident of picking up the trophy this time for his country.

“Brazil with Neymar is going to be very tough,” Messi said. “We know their potential and what Ney can do individually.

“What I want most is to win something with the national team. I always try to leave everything playing for the national team, to give my all. I always fight to win the cup.

“Whether we have won or lost we have always progressed deep in the Copa America and now once again too, and this group deserve it.”
