Neymar believes that Brazil's victory over Spain in the Confederations Cup final will prove to the world that they are back.

Brazil striker Neymar believes that his side's 3-0 win over Spain in the final of the Confederations Cup final has proved to the world that the Selecao are "back".

Goals either side of half time from Fred and a strike from the 21-year-old himself secured the victory for the hosts over Vicente del Bosque's side.

Neymar told reporters: "Brazil have shown the world that the Brazil national team is back. We showed that we deserve respect with a great win over the world's best.

"We didn't hide, we ran and ran. We played very strongly from start to finish. That shows we are a strong team."

Neymar will now join up with Barcelona following his reported £48.6m move from Santos.
