Neymar was in inspired form as he led Brazil to a 2-1 win over Peru in their opening game of the Copa America but he has dismissed suggestions that he could be in line to land the Ballon D'Or.
The Brazilian is currently behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the running for the individual award on form but after helping Barcelona to the treble and his Champions League goalscoring record, he is being tipped as an outsider.
Asked about his chances, Neymar said: "This year the Ballon d'Or already has it's owner, for everything he did this year, Messi deserves it. Let's see if I can get in the top three"
It might not be his year but he could become a winner in the future.
