Neymar dazzles for Santos


16 Dec 2015

Back at the 2011 FIFA Club World Cup, a 19-year-old Neymar represented Santos as they tackled local side Kashiwa Reysol where his talents were already abundantly clear. Drifting into space 25 yards from goal, Neymar picked up a pass from Ganso and shaped to shoot with his right foot, only to instead jink inside on his left. Then, having left his marker for dead with this change of direction, in one lithe movement he curled a sumptuous shot into the top left-hand corner, leaving keeper Takanori Sugeno rooted to the spot.
