Neymar: Kaka is a legend
Neymar, 20, told reporters at the press conference: "He's a legend. Kaka led the national team for many years and I hope that we can play together many times.
"Playing alongside him is going to be very special, because he's a role model for this generation of players."
Kaka, 30, was equally as delighted with his young compatriot, telling reporters: "He's an amazing footballer and I'm eager to play alongside him."
"Neymar is a great lad. He's always laughing and playing jokes. He's one of a kind. I'm not going to discover anything new about him as a player."
The players were speaking to the media ahead of tonight's clash against Zico's Iraq. Both are expected to start in Mano Menezes' first eleven.
Tonight is set to be the very first time the duo has played together as Kaka was dropped from the Seleção after the 2010 World Cup.
The game kicks off at 7.30pm UK time at Malmö's Swedbank Stadium in Sweden.
