“The final is very important when it comes to saying who is the best and Lewandowski is a great player, a star, he could be the best striker in the area around, but Neymar is different. He is at the same level as Messi and Cristiano,” Deco told ‘Goal’.

The ex-player is clear that Neymar has matured. “He changed a while back and that is what gives you the experience and the maturity to deal with certain things. Now he is in a moment of his career in which he has the maturity to understand the game and his own body,” he added.

“Neymar will never lose his essence because that is his game, he doesn’t have to change because he is already a different player and we can’t ask him to be a player he isn’t. He’s happy on the field of play, he knows he has to dribble past players to get on the attack. That was how he surprised the whole world, that’s the way he plays by enjoying himself and making us enjoy,” Deco explained.
