The players that are going to be involved in the Confederations Cup final know each other’s faces too much. The game will be a mix-up of mainly Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea stars; Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, Shakira’s husband Gerard Pique, Fernando Torres, David Luiz and the list of Blanco, Catalan and Blue names goes on…
Evidently, a certain matchup stands out above the rest: it is the meeting between Neymar and his new Barca team mates. Will the Brazil number 10 forward play the villain by single-handedly upsetting favourites Spain or will he suffer from intimidation towards the greatness of Xavi, Iniesta and company?
At the tournament, the young chap has shown that oppositions cannot keep him quiet throughout a match. His outstanding volleys against Japan and Mexico set Brazil on perfect note. Against Italy, his free-kick stunned world-class goalkeeper Buffon.
If Uruguay thought they had found the way to shut down Neymar in the semis, they were wrong. The 21-year-old seemed to struggle to find his space until the final moments of the match when he exhibited his cheekiness to literally kiss Uruguay goodbye by assisting Paulinho’s late winner.
Critics believe that the ex-Santos playmaker has yet to prove himself and much to learn in Europe. Before commencing his club football challenge in Spain, the Brazil vs Spain Confederations Cup final offers Neymar two simple options: a flattering triumph over the world’s best team or a maturity lesson through defeat.
In any case, football is not a one-man game and tonight's game is not just about Neymar. Fernando Torres has the habit of scoring in finals while Brazil have vowed to end the Spanish era. The angles connected to this encounter are numerous and extremely engaging. In fact, the efforts and mistakes of all players involved will shape up this glorious Confederations Cup 2013 final at the Maracaña stadium in Rio.
