Neymar Joins Messi and Aguero in the IFFHS CONMEBOL Team of the Decade

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar was among 11 South American players selected for the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) CONMEBOL Team of the Decade for 2011-2020.

The Brazilian was accompanied by the likes of his former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi. The selection for the team was based on a 4-3-3 setup as Peruvian striker Paolo Guerrero and Argentine striker Sergio Aguero joined Neymar upfront as the three forwards selected for the team.

The team also included two other PSG legends in midfielder Angel Di Maria and defender Thiago Silva.

For Neymar, he rose from being a mere top Brazilian prospect to one of the best players in the world over the last decade. In club football, he won trophies with both FC Barcelona and PSG. And with the Brazilian national team, he wound up scoring 64 international goals over the last decade, which was the most by any CONMEBOL player.

Both Silva and Di Maria also enjoyed great success in club football, especially with PSG. In international football, Silva went on to help the Brazilian national claim the 2019 Copa America tournament while Di Maria helped the Argentinian national team reach three major tournament finals.

This trio is certainly among the best talents to play for PSG as well.
