Neymar Comments On Lionel Messi's Argentina Heroics

By Kurt Buckerfield - Oct 12, 2017 11:29 AM @KurtLaduma

Brazil superstar Neymar has given his say on Lionel Messi's heroics that secured Argentina a place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Messi Sends Argentina To World Cup

The 30-year-old Argentine scored three times for his country in their 3-1 win over Ecuador on Wednesday morning, a result that sent the Albiceleste to the World Cup in Russia.

Neymar, who played in Brazil's 3-0 win over Chile on Wednesday, has insisted he is glad Messi helped his team qualify for the tournament.

"I'm happy for him," he said, according

"I'm happy to see a friend participate in such an important competition.

"I also have friends in the Chile team but we're men, we have to play to win every game."  

Messi Breaks All-Time South American Record

The four South American teams who have automatically qualified for the 2018 World Cup are Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Colombia, while Peru will play in a playoff against New Zealand in a bid to secure qualification for the prestigious competition.

Do you think Brazil or Argentina could win the World Cup next year? Let us know in the comments section below.

None. Brazil will win it again with some of those players in that team. just not next year! European teams are just better prepared already than South American teams.
