YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Neymar has pushed the Copa America disappointment behind him as the Paris Saint Germain superstar is currently enjoying his summer break at an unknown destination as of the time of this publication.
The forward failed to help Brazil avoid defeat to Argentina in the final of the summer competition earlier this month as Angel di Maria's lone strike handed Lionel Scaloni's men the title in the end.
