PSG 6-1 Angers: Neymar's individual highlights prove football is his playground

Neymar was unplayable during PSG 6-1 Angers

Neymar is one of the most divisive footballers on the planet.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar is also one of the most naturally talented players around, but his fiery nature and proneness to diving often antagonise fans around the world.

But from a strictly football perspective, there is only one player on the planet capable of captivating spectators quite like Neymar – and that man is Lionel Messi.

Even that’s a close one, because the Brazilian is a deadly combination of both an entertainer and a world-class footballer.

He can deliver every skill in the book, but he also contributes with goals and assists virtually every time he steps out onto a pitch with either PSG or Brazil.

Neymar in action

Last night was no different for the 28-year-old. In Paris Saint-Germain’s 6-1 victory over Angers, Neymar scored twice, delivered one assist and was just simply unplayable at the Parc des Princes.

To start your Saturday off in the right manner, we advise you to watch the Brazilian magician’s highlights below, because you won’t see many better performances in 2020/21.

Two goals, one assist, five shots, four chances created, seven dribbles and three key passes, Neymar was absolutely EVERYWHERE in the French capital last night.

The world’s most expensive footballer has now played 88 games in all competitions for PSG since signing from Barcelona in the summer of 2017.

Those appearances have yielded 72 goals and 42 assists, meaning Neymar is currently averaging 1.3 goal contributions per game for the Parisian outfit.

In Ligue 1, the 28-year-old has now scored 49 goals and contributed with 28 assists in just 55 matches, an average of 1.4 goal contributions per appearance.

Those are Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo-esque numbers, so maybe it’s time fans of the beautiful game put Neymar’s flaws to one side and simply appreciate one of the all time greats.

With the Brazilian and Kylian Mbappe at the peak of their powers, PSG are going to be a threat once again in the Champions League – despite their sub-par summer transfer window.

You’ve been warned, Manchester United
