[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Brazilian star Neymar played his first game since suffering a broken vertebra from the knee from Colombia's Camilo Zunigaduring the World Cup and scored two terrific goals in Barcelona's 6-0 win over Mexico's Leon in Joan Gamper Trophy game.

His second, set up by Lionel Messi, was especially brilliant.

Messi, who scored the game's first goal, chipped the ball to Neymar as he split the backline. Neymar's first touch with his left foot beat the keeper.

His second touch, a back-heel with his right, sent it home.

    Lots of new faces now at FC Barca. Lets see how the do. It will be interesting to see a more mature Neymar this next eight months - and the excessive weight of the World Cup now gone. That really was Brazils problem - way too much emphasis upon a still terribly young Neymar as the only really dynamic offensive threat. At Barca he is still behind Messi and can better develop into what will indeed surpass Messi in another 22 - 24 months. Glad if he has healed.
