Uruguay captain Diego Godin believes no matter the tactics the opposition use, Neymar will always try to be effective.
Brazil emerged 4-1 winners as they continue their dominance in the CONMEBOL world cup qualifying group stage.
Neymar scored a lob and Paulinho’s hattrick cancelled out Cavani’s opener in the win. Godin would not blame his defensive colleagues for the loss.
“I think we defended really well,” he told reporters. “They really gave their 100 per cent, they handled it really well.
“It’s true that Neymar really makes a difference. It doesn’t matter if you have one or two players going at him, he makes a difference.
“He makes that at every game, in Barcelona also, never mind what tactic you use. It’s his virtue and the [Brazil] team was strong.
“We did what we expected, what we were asked to do and we couldn’t make anything out of it.”
