Note to any soccer club playing against Brazil's Santos: Neymar is very, very fast.

The 20-year-old star put on a show in Wednesday's match against Internacional in the Copa Libertadores, shredding up the defense en route to a hat trick. Neymar showed off his speed for his second goal, instead of pulling off a couple amazing moves to get an open shot like we've seen him do before. After Santos caused a turnover, Neymar got the ball deep in his team's own side and turned the match into a sprint. Once he had possession, Neymar dashed through five different defenders from nearly 70 yards out and tapped it just over the sliding goalie.

Santos went on to win 3-1 and their next Copa Libertadores match is against Juan Aurich on March 15.
