Brazil striker Neymar says he is not approaching Saturday's final against Mexico much differently than any other match he has played with Brazil so far, even though it can give his nation its coveted first gold in football, the only title the five-time world champions are yet to win.

It will be Neymar's first final with Brazil's senior team since he became widely seen as the future of Brazilian football, the player responsible for leading the nation at the Olympics and at the 2014 World Cup at home.

But the 20-year-old striker says he is not expecting anything new when the ball starts rolling at Wembley.
