Neymar helps finish off Mexico with a spectacular run and assist

Clive Rose

Neymar put Brazil ahead early with a spectacular volley goal and helped finish off Mexico in stoppage time with a play usually reserved for people wearing capes and their underwear on the outside of their pants.

I'm going to apologize in advance because I'm guessing many of you are already growing tired of us telling you how amazing Neymar is. So I'm sorry, but the kid is amazing. First there was his goal to put Brazil ahead in the first half, which was nice. His assist to put Mexico away late in the second half?

There aren't adjectives to describe this stuff.

In case you don't believe -- or foolishly believe I'm exaggerating -- here's some visual evidence.:


That's pretty sweet ... but the close-up view is even better:


Are you kidding me?! The Flash couldn't even pull that off. Barry Allen is just sitting in Central City shaking his head at this.

Neymar split two Mexico players like they weren't even there, danced inside, froze a third defender and generated a perfect assist to Jo for the easy finish. Jo shouldn't have even celebrated, he should have just pointed at Neymar and given him an applause.

If Neymar consistently pulls off stuff like this playing for Barcelona, we might have to start a site dedicated just to GIFs of him doing ridiculous and amazing things.

I'll just go ahead and volunteer to manage that site now because I could watch Neymar do bad things like this all day.
