With training sessions normally happening behind closed doors, football fans are not afforded the opportunity to see what their favourite players are like away from the scrutiny of a match day.

Perhaps much-maligned Liverpool winger Stewart Downing is able to score for fun at Melwood during the week, or David de Gea commands his box like Peter Schmeichel when practising at Carrington.

Thankfully, TV cameras are sometimes allowed to document what happens on the training pitch, and this week we have been able to catch a glimpse of two young Brazilians performing to distinction during a practice session.

Both Neymar and Chelsea midfielder Oscar were captured scoring goals of exquisite quality against their teammates as they prepared for their upcoming friendlies with South Africa and China.

You can watch both efforts below...
