The duo have been linked to a host of top European clubs this summer and the 2011 Copa America has been another opportunity to showcase their talents, with both playing key roles as their nations topped their respective groups.
The Udinese man, who is closing in on a move to Champions League winners Barcelona, tallied an overwhelming 66 per cent of the vote following a superb 2010-11 campaign in Italy's Serie A, along with some impressive performances in Argentina, where Chile topped Group C.
Real Madrid target Neymar, on the other hand, managed only 34% of the vote, although his reputation has been enhanced after an improved display in Brazil's final group game, where he scored a double in a 4-2 win over Ecuador.
