Brazil coach has hailed Neymar’s Champions League heroics for Barcelona as a timely boost for the nation’s football as they prepare for Copa América.
The 23-year-old took his season tally to 39 goals in all competitions when he found the net deep into stoppage time as Barça clinched a famous treble with 3-1 victory over Juventus in Berlin on Saturday. Dunga said: “I don’t think that this is only important for the national team. In my opinion this is good for Brazilian football as a whole, having a player scoring in the final and winning the Champions League. For Brazil this is very good. As I said before, I was happy to see Barcelona playing that match because it will keep Neymar very motivated, so it was good for us.”
