Brazil forward Neymar praised his team mates for their dazzling display to beat the reigning world champions in the Confederations Cup final. The player, who picked up the Golden Ball award for being voted the best player of the tournament, said afterwards, “We have achieved something which everyone thought was impossible – and proved that nothing is impossible. The team played incredibly well – more than people expected. We have made a lot of people happy”.
Neymar’s team mate, Chelsea defender David Luiz had words of consolation for the runners-up. “People know what we are capable of but they have to have the humility to recognize what a great opponent Spain is. None of us could have dreamed that Brazil would beat the current world champions 3-0. We showed technique, class and talent. It was a perfect moment,” he told reporters.
