Brazil national football team players expressed their happiness with Neymar's return to the pitch three months after the Paris Saint-Germain forward was ruled unfit to play due to injury, during mixed-zone statements following Brazil-Colombia friendly in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Friday.

Neymar scored a goal and assisted with his side's second in his first match since June.

"After six months without playing, tonight he showed the great and important player that he is," Paris Saint Germain teammate Thiago Silva said of Neymar.

"It was seen inside the field that Neymar needed to run, play, and create plays. He was doing what he loves," said Brazil player Marquinhos.

The friendly match ended up in a 2-2 draw.
