Neymar is one of the most talented dribblers in world football and many a defender has been embarrassed by the Barcelona forward's countless tricks and skills.

However, Neymar had to suffer as a litany of his opponents have over the last couple of years when training earlier this week.

Chelsea defender David Luiz is known for being quite skillful himself and certainly showed it as the Brazil team prepared for their friendly with South Korea in Seoul on Saturday, which they won comfortably 2-0 thanks in part to a delightful Neymar free-kick.

In what looked like a 'piggy-in-the-middle' training drill Neymar and Luiz went for a loose ball, the Barcelona star stretched for the ball but the Blues centre-back got there first and dragged the ball through the young star's legs.

It was a perfect nutmeg, or panna, and the other Brazil players that saw it certainly enjoyed it - Real Madrid defender Marcelo made this very clear to Neymar.
