Neymar aged 22 grew up watching Diego aged 29 and looked pleased to meet the Fenerbahçe star.

The Barcelona forward scored twice and provided an assist in Brazil’s 4-0 win over Turkey.

The match was played at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium, home to Fenerbahçe.

Diego has failed to establish himself as a regular first-team player at Fenerbahçe yet but has started receiving more playing time recently under manager İsmail Kartal.

Fenerbahçe signed Diego as a free agent on a three-year deal worth €3.5 million per-season.

Diego scored four times in 33 appearances for Brazil during his playing time for the Selecao.

The 29-year-old attacking midfielder was part of the Atletico Madrid side that won the La Liga and reached the final of the Champions League last season.
