Neymar 'saddened' by Argentina defeat

The Brazil attacker rued not only Lionel Messi's late strike in a seven-goal thriller at the MetLife Stadium on Saturday, but also their profligacy in front of Sergio Romero's goal
Neymar has admitted that he has been left "saddened" by Brazil's 4-3 friendly defeat to Argentina on Saturday.

A Lionel Messi hat-trick condemned the Selecao to an unfortunate reverse in their last game before the Olympic Games later in the summer. Federico Fernandez bagged Argentina's other goal in New Jersey.

Romulo, Oscar and Hulk tried their best to salvage a result for the visitors, but Neymar was disappointed to see their hold on the match slip away from them.

"I leave sad to have lost," the Santos ace said after the match.

"We had chances to win the match. We lost the game but our team played very well. We took the lead and went one up, but unfortunately, we conceded a late goal and lost the game."
