Five years ago yesterday, Neymar scored a legendary goal you may have forgotten. It was for Santos in Brazil.
Simply incredible. At this time, Neymar Jr. was just a 19-year-old soccer player. He was not the Barcelona superstar he is nowadays. But, thanks to this goal, the Brazil captain showed the whole world who he was. And also won him the 2011 Puskas Award.
This terrific goal was scored against Flamengo in the Brazil's Serie A, in July 2011. As you can see below, Neymar splits two defenders. He then continues with a one-two pass with Borges. And last part of the action is just a masterpiece. Enjoy it.
