MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK: Golazos] A hat trick, a standing ovation from the opposing fans, an autograph for a Cruzeiro ball boy, and a beautiful assist. All from a freshly shorn Neymar on Saturday, who can do simply no wrong in Brazil.

Most predicted Neymar would already be in Europe, and judging by the applause and serenading he gets from Cruzeiro’s home crowd, while engineering this 4-0 win by Santos, it appears Brazilian fans are just grateful to still see the prodigy in person. The 20-year-old star seems duly humbled by the adulation.

Thanks to the magic of the internet, we’re just grateful to see the aptly titled highlights, “Show de Neymar: dribles, gols e aplausos”…



Not quite as impressive as being serenaded by opposing fans, but a good deal more adorable, is this bit of boldness the superstar inspired in a Cruzeiro ballboy.

Seconds before the game starts he tracks down his idol for an autograph. Neymar magnanimously shepherds the youngster from security just long enough for the boy to remove a Cruzeiro shirt, revealing his Santos jersey underneath – which the star patiently signs.
