Neymar scores Barcelona goal after wonderful touch

Published Add your comment

It hasn't taken Neymar long to find his feet at Barcelona.

The Brazil superstar, who joined the Catalan giants for a fee just shy of £50m earlier this summer, has scored another excellent goal on the club's pre-season tour of the Far East.

With the scores locked at 1-1 before the half-time interval, Neymar earned Barcelona a one-goal lead at the break with a beautiful touch and finish.

After receiving a Cesc Fabregas pass, the 21-year-old span his defender with a superb cushioned touch with the outside of his boot, before planting the ball just inside the goalkeeper's near post.

It was a touch of class from a player expected to light up La Liga and help Barcelona become more competitive in the Champions League again, following last season's humiliation at the hands of current European champions Bayern Munich.
