[VIDEO PICK] Still only 20, Neymar showed once again his ability to stop, or start, on a dime is second to none on this nifty goal that won the
2012 Recopa Sudamericana last week.
The first leg of the Recopa, a home-and-home between the reigning champions of the Copa Libertadores, Santos, and the Copa Sudamericana, Universidad de Chile, was scoreless in Santiago. Santos won the return leg 2-0, and this first half opener by the Brazilian wunderkind ended up the winner.
Longtime setup man Ganso signed with Sao Paolo the week before, but the stop-start one-two will always be a Neymar staple. Here he gets it at the top of the box, waits for the defense to collapse, feeds Andre then feints left before darting right to slot a cool finish in the bottom left off the return - aided by ball watching defenders.
