On his 200th appearance for his club Santos last night, Brazilian international Neymar scored a stunning solo goal to mark the occasion in a 2-2 draw with Atletico Mineiro. Fittingly the man whose crown he is looking to take, Ronaldhino, was on the field when it happened, playing for Atletico Mineiro.
The 20-year old striker is one of the most sought after talents in the world and deep-pocketed European admirers will be lining up to make astronomical bids during the upcoming transfer windows. It’s easy to see why from our animated GIF.
He claims he wants to stay in Brazil until the 2014 World Cup is played there but if he keeps scoring goals like this someone will make Santos and offer they won’t be able to refuse.
Neymar has scored more than a goal a game over his 200 games for Santos and has notched 16 goals in 25 games for Brazil. Two of which he scored against Japan, in Poland, on Tuesday night. I have been reliably informed that Brazil is quite the distance from Poland.
