Neymar takes aim at Brazilians supporting Argentina in Copa America final

Neymar has launched a withering attack on the Brazilians who will be supporting Argentina during the Copa America final.

A number of locals will be hoping to see Lionel Messi lift the trophy as opposed to their own countrymen, prompting a furious reaction from Neymar.

"I am Brazilian with a lot of pride and love," Neymar wrote on an Instagram story.

"My dream was always to be in the Brazil national team and hear the fans singing.

"I never attacked, nor will attack [Brazil] if they are competing for something, whether that is in sport, a modelling competition, the Oscars.

"If it's Brazil I am Brazil, and who is Brazilian and does it differently?

"It's fine, I will respect it, but go to... for those who are in opposition."

Time will tell whether this post has the desired effect. For Neymar, the immediate priority is lifting the Copa America trophy at the Maracana on Saturday night.
