Finalissima: Neymar mocks Messi, others over celebrations

Brazil forward, Neymar Jr, has mocked Argentina for their celebrations after winning the Cup of Champions at Wembley.

Neymar’s PSG teammate, Lionel Messi, put in a fine display as they beat Italy 3-0 on Wednesday to win this year’s Finalissima.

It was their second title in the space of 11 months.

The Albiceleste had defeated Brazil 1-0 last year in the Copa America final to win their first major title since 1993.

Photographs of Argentina’s dressing room celebrations went viral on social media and Neymar posted a comment under one Instagram post ironically asking if Argentina had won the World Cup.

He wrote: “Did they win the World Cup?”

Neymar’s comment comes after Argentina international Nicolas Otamendi shared a clip of his teammates singing a song dedicated to neighbours Brazil, reminding them of their Copa America final defeat.

“Brasilero, what happened? [Argentina captain Lionel] Messi went to Rio [de Janeiro] and got the Copa [America],” the song goes.

Last year, Brazil’s players made fun of Argentina following their elimination from the football competition at the Olympic Games.
