Neymar celebrates his 200th in style

[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] The Brazilian boy wonder, with binders full of highlights, was at it again Wednesday night in Sao Paolo, after brief campaign stops in Europe.

Brazil qualifies as World Cup hosts in 2014, but it continues to travel the world, leaving lopsided scorelines in its wake.

Neymar had a goal and an assist in Brazil’s, 6-0, win over Iraq in Sweden last week Thursday. He scored twice Tuesday afternoon in a 4-0 win over Japan in Poland. Wednesday night, he was nearly 7,000 miles away, making his 200th appearance for Santos against Atletico Mineiro and Ronaldinho in a 2-2 tie.

As you’ll see, it was a very big deal. The young superstar is wearing No. 200, the TV has a “San200cam” and what would a party in Brazil be without entertainment?

In our first clip, he nutmegs a defender with a backheel near midfield, causing two Atletico players to impersonate Keystone Cops, then he races in, cuts right, double clutches, and finishes -- between the last defender’s legs. The second sees Neymar embarrass a defender with a flick, and then get fouled, posthaste, by the victim of his ingenuity, prompting a yellow card.

Neymar’s 200th, enjoy…
