Argentina superstar Lionel Messi has taken Neymar's banter for the COPA America final in good spirits.
Neymar led Brazil to a semi-final win over Peru on Monday before promising that he will put his friendship and admiration for Messi aside when Brazil takes on Argentina in the final.
Messi has since been asked to share his thoughts on Neymar's sentiments...
"Yes, I know he (Neymar) said that because he's a good boy," Messi said, according to Barca Universal.
"But it's the final, and we all want to win," the 34-year-old concluded.
Meanwhile, the final will be played on Sunday, 11 July.
