Brazil and Paris Saint Germain star Neymar took to Instagram to hit out at rivals Argentina’s celebration after they won the Finalissima at Wembley. 

The Finalissima was played between the winners of the Euro, Italy and the winners of the Copa America, Argentina. 

Lionel Messi’s side outplayed the Italians from start to finish as goals from Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria and Paulo Dybala sealed a 3-0 victory over the European champions. 

Messi was awarded Man of the Match after producing two assists. 

After the match, footage of the Argentina team celebrating started to emerge online, and the scenes seems to have irked their rival from Brazil. 

Neymar commented on a post saying: “Have they won the world cup?”

It is not surprising that Brazilians want to have a pop at the Argentinians at every opportunity as the rivalry between the two great footballing nations is so intense. 

But it is rather surprising that Neymar decided to comment even though his PSG team mate and close friend, Messi was front and centre of the celebrations. 

It is unlikely that Neymar’s comments will dampen Messi or his team mates’ mood as the country celebrates winning two trophies ahead of this year’s World Cup. 

Messi’s team mate Emi Martinez has been speaking about his side’s chances. 

Martinez said: “We always will be one of the favourites for the World Cup, because we have the best player in the world and we will all fight like lions for him.” 

Messi himself will be thinking about his future after the tournament, he has reportedly said: “After the World Cup, I don’t know, I’m going to have to rethink a lot of things. Surely many things will change.”

It is billing up to be one of the most entertaining tournaments ever, Brazil will be looking to win their sixth World Cup, England will look to go one better than last year's Euro when they lost in the final and defending champion France is looking as strong as ever with a squad stacked with world class talents such as Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Paul Pogba.

The World Cup will get underway in Qatar later on in the year.
