Think you've seen all there is to see skills-wise from Brazilian ace Neymar...well think again. In recent footage relayed by the Daily Mirror, Neymar has perhaps scored his most brilliant and downright outrageous goal yet from behind the goal posts. Yes, you heard me, BEHIND the goal.
The Barcelona forward is everything you would expect from a Brazilian footballer; he has bags of pace and partners his electric runs with a bagful of silky skills which would put anyone to shame.Whether its during Barca's matches, at home or during charity games, Neymar has never failed to impress us with his exquisite skills.
However, he may have surpassed even himself with his most recent folly. The incident in question took place during the national team's training session ahead of their show-down against France tonight.
In an incredible sequence of events which resembles outright football wizardry, Neymar picks up the ball behind the goal posts, executes (as you do) a set of perfect ball juggles and tops it all off by directing the ball with the perfect amount of power and spin, over the crossbar and into the back of the net.
Instead of his teammates' jaws dropping and hitting the turf, the rest of the group barely reacts to the outstanding piece of skill executed by the 23 year old. Granted, a diploma in exquisite skill execution is practically a must for any Seleção player, but one can't help but think that Neymar's recent folly deserved AT LEAST an approving nod of the head...
Although I have tried, most probably in vain, to convey through the power of words the sheer magic of Neymar's goal, sometimes video footage speaks louder than words.
