Neymar congratulates Messi

The PSG star Neymar has admitted he is pleased that former team-mate Lionel Messi will play in the 2018 World Cup, GOAL reported.

Messi scored a hat-trick as Argentina sealed automatic qualification to next summer's competition in Russia, helping his country climb from sixth to third in the CONMEBOL table.

"I'm happy for him," Neymar told reporters after Brazil's 3-0 win over Chile.

"I'm happy to see a friend participate in such an important competition. I also have friends in the Chile team but we're men. We have to play to win every game."
