Barcelona superstar Neymar has been hailed by teammate Dani Alves, who believes his Brazilian compatriot has a God-given gift.
Alves feels the world is yet to see the best of Neymar, who completed his £48.6m move from Santos to the La Liga champions in June, but it soon will.
"I think that he's one of the few players that when he was born, God pointed his finger at him and said 'You're the man'," Alves told Eurosport. "He's at a great team and the whole footballing world will be watching him. The world will soon get to know him and see what he is capable of."
Neymar, 21, is settling in at Barcelona following his big-money move. The Brazilian has made five appearances for the Catalan giants - most from the bench - and found the back of the net in the Spanish Super Cup clash against Atletico Madrid.
And the talented forward scored his 26th goal for Brazil - from just 42 appearances - earlier this week against Portugal.
Neymar helped Brazil win the Confederations Cup on home soil this summer - and Alves believes the Seleção's triumph will encourage more people to regard the World Cup hosts as 2014 favourites.
"I think that many people would know bet on a Brazil victory, but three or four months ago they wouldn't have done," the full-back added. "That's the true impact winning the Confederations Cup has had on us.
"Many people had forgotten about Brazil, but we've won five World Cups and that counts for a lot."
