Brazilian superstar Neymar gave his first press conference since being knocked out of the World Cup due to injury during Brazil's quarter-final win over Colombia. 

In an impassioned session, Neymar revealed that he's pulling for fellow South Americans Argentina and, of course, Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi. 

Neymar: "I prefer that Argentina wins the World Cup. Messi deserves it for all he has done in football. He's my friend, I wish him the best"
