MOST COMMENTED

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has said that Lionel Messi, the world’s best player for the last four years, will remain at the top for two more years before being eclipsed by Brazilian youngster and Barcelona teammate Neymar.

“Lionel will continue to be the best for one or two more years,” Scolari told the German soccer federation’s website. “Messi is a team player but he is blessed with a marvelous individual talent. He is capable of winning a game all on his own.”

As for 21-year-old Neymar, he said: “Now that he is in Europe, and playing with Barca, Neymar can begin to show his immense technique to the whole world.
