Neymar's goal named of the year

[VIDEO PICK] Young Brazilian Neymar won the FIFA Puskas Award for the best goal of the year, beating out Lionel Messi and Englishman Wayne Rooney. Neymar's goal came in a Brazilian league game for Santos.

Neymar received praise from former Brazilian star Ronaldo.

"Neymar cannot just reach Messi, he can be better. He has too much talent to stay only in Brazil," Ronaldo said in Zurich. "He is a talent that we have to export and allow him to dominate the world, to own it playing the game that he does. The prestige and competition in European soccer is massive."
