Neymar scores corner kick goal in Brazil training

Published 1 Comments

Neymar has been one of the most talked about stars at the World Cup this summer, which is hardly surprising given the fact that he's the poster boy of the host nation. The Brazil striker has not disappointed when it comes to entertaining fans having showcased a number of neat flicks and tricks over the past couple of weeks.

The Barcelona star's latest showboating skill captured on camera comes from the training ground, where he successfully scores from a corner with an outside-of-the-boot shot.

His curling effort is undermined somewhat by the fact there is no goalkeeper between the sticks, but the tight angle from which the speculative set-piece is taken makes it an impressive feat nonetheless.

Neymar nails Fred with training ground karate kick

The 22-year-old kicked off his World Cup campaign in scintillating fashion, netting a brace as Luiz Felipe Scolari's side recorded a 3-1 victory over Croatia in the tournament opener, making a perfect start in their quest to advance from Group A.

And, despite a less convincing performance during the 0-0 draw with Mexico in game two, confidence remains high in the Brazil camp that Neymar and Co will perform to the best of their ability in the forthcoming clash against Cameroon and secure a place in the last 16.

Can Brazil qualify?

The whole world will be watching with intent on Monday and it would be fantastic to see Neymar emulate this kind of skill and pull off a similarly spectacular piece of individual brilliance ahead of the knockout phase of the competition.
