Remembering Neymar's ridiculous corner for PSG vs Toulouse in 2017


There perhaps isn’t a player who has divided opinion more over the past decade than Neymar.

The Brazilian, 28, has never quite been able to match the ridiculous feats of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, which he was once tipped to do.

However, his record of 69 goals in 80 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain is mightily impressive.

And before the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season was brought to an early end due to coronavirus, Neymar was having an outstanding campaign.

"Neymar is an outlier, he has qualities at the level of Ronaldinho,” Cesc Fabregas, who played with the forward at Barcelona, recently said, per Goal.

"He is a superstar that makes the difference when he wants.”


Neymar's ridiculous corner in 2017

That much was evident when PSG played Toulouse in August 2017.

Neymar scored twice and set up two goals as the Parisians romped to a 6-2 victory.

And his second assist was absolutely ridiculous, a bullet corner with the outside of his right boot that found Layvin Kurzawaya, who scored with a stunning acrobatic attempt.

Neymar’s assist sent fans on Twitter wild…

That’s Neymar’s quality.

PSG probably haven’t seen it as often as they would have liked due to a number of injuries that the former Santos man has suffered during his time in France.

But when he’s been able to feature, he’s rarely disappointed.


Before the season was brought to a halt, Neymar helped fire PSG to first place in Ligue 1 - they’ve since been officially awarded the title - and through to the quarter-final of the Champions League.

With reigning champions Liverpool out and the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona not at their best, PSG will be eager for the European competition to resume.

They have a great opportunity to end their long wait to win the Champions League.
