Neymar has paid tribute to Lionel Messi after Argentina beat Brazil to win the Copa America.

Messi has finally ended his wait to win a trophy for his country as Angel Di Maria’s first-half goal sealed Argentina’s 1-0 victory at the Maracana.

Neymar, meanwhile, came under fire after the full-time whistle as he appeared to be in high spirits in a conversation with his former Barcelona teammate.

But Neymar insists he is ‘hurt’ following Brazil’s defeat and is adamant that he ‘hates’ losing.

But the Paris Saint-Germain forward also sent a special message to Messi, who is claims is the best player in recent history.

‘Losing hurts me, it hurts me… it’s something I still haven’t learned to live with,’ Neymar wrote on Instagram.
