In that instance the now Barcelona forward danced his way down the left before powering though the middle and slotting home with a sumptuous finish.

Diogo's goal certainly shares a few similarities with Neymar's strike - the powerful run through the middle that leaves plenty of players trailing in his wake as well as the brilliant finish.

While lacking a little of Neymar's deft footwork his goal is certainly well worth a watch - although it didn't save his side from a 2-1 defeat against Palmeiras in the Brasileiro Serie B.
