Neymar has insisted that Spain are favourites to defeat Brazil in today's Confederations Cup final at the Maracana stadium.

But the 21-year-old vowed Brazil would not fall into the trap of only defending against the reigning World and European Champions. “The Spain team is the best in the world.

They are the favourites,” Neymar was quoted as saying by Xinhua on Friday. “But we have to play our own game respecting them, but also without letting them take control. We can’t be afraid to take risks. Sunday is going to be a historic day. The whole world is going to be watching.
