Confederations Cup star Neymar scored a superb 45-yard lob during the second Messi & Friends charity match in Lima, Peru on Tuesday night.

Neymar and Messi, teammates next season at Barcelona, were on opposing sides for the friendly - with the Argentine emerging victorious 8-5 over a World XI.

Neymar, who led Brazil to the Confederations Cup title scoring four goals in five games, put the disappointment of missing an early penalty aside to score a memorable strike from just inside the opposition half.

The match, in aid of children and teenagers around the world, boasted the likes of Dani Alves, Pablo Osvaldo and Pablo Aimar as well as Neymar and Messi.

The Barcelona pair both found the scoresheet, while Alves played for both sides and scored from the penalty spot for the World XI.

Check out the highlights from the match - including Neymar's stunning 45-yard goal - in the video below...
