Fans erect 40ft Neymar cut-out right next to 30ft Lionel Messi model to outdo rival supporters ahead of World Cup 2022

BRAZIL football fans have got one over on their rivals Argentina by unveiling a 40ft cut-out of Neymar.

It comes after Argentina fans in Kerala, India, created a 30ft cut out of their hero Lionel Messi.

The cardboard cut-out was paraded down the streets of Pullavoor by fans wearing Argentina and Barcelona shirts.

The Messi cut-out was then erected in the Kurungattu Kadavu River, taking pride of place for the fans who created it.

But they were later outshone by fans of arch-rivals Brazil.

Cheeky supporters decided to build a Neymar cut-out, only this one would be taller.

Standing at 40ft, the Neymar cut-out also takes a place in the same river close to where Messi stands.

But that did not stop Argentina fans jumping into the river to fly Argentina flags just two weeks before the World Cup gets underway.

The Albicelestes are targeting their first World Cup since 1986 in Qatar.

They will be dependent on captain Messi to offer inspiration on and off the field to make their dream a reality – just as he did at the Copa America last year.


Angel Di Maria praised the team talk Messi gave ahead of their win in the final against Brazil.

Di Maria said: “Before the start of each game, he (Messi) spoke.

“But this last speech was different, he lost his mind.”
