With each passing goal Neymar scores, it becomes more and more apparent why top European clubs like Chelsea and Real Madrid are interested in signing the 19-year-old Brazilian forward.
But even for a highlight reel as impressive as his, the goal scored by the one-named wonder-teen for Santos against Flamengo on Wednesday night could go down as one of his finest ever. (Even if Flamengo won the match, 5-4.)
It isn't just the fact that he beats no fewer than five defenders on a lengthy run that takes him from the touchline close to midfield all the way into the opponent's penalty area. It's the extremely rare combination of skill and creativity he shows. Neymar splits two defenders, uses a lengthy wall pass to beat another, does a drag-over-flick move to beat another, and then scores with an outside-foot chip, just over the oncoming goalkeeper.
It's enough to make a spectator dizzy. So imagine how the defenders felt.
