Belo Horizonte, Brazil: Neymar has hit back at claims of Uruguay captain Diego Lugano that he is "talented at winning free-kicks".

Speaking after Brazil's 2-1 victory over Uruguay in Wednesday's Confederations Cup semi-final at the Mineirao Stadium, Neymar moved to avoid a verbal confrontation with the centre-back, reports Xinhua.

"He has the right to say what he wants, it won't affect me. I don't pay any attention to it. What is important is that I help my team to win," the 21-year-old Barcelona striker said.
