Video: Neymar Scores Sensational Goal In Charity Match Against Lionel Messi

New, comments

Not content with scoring in the FIFA Confederations Cup final against Iker Casillas, Neymar stole the show at last night's Charity friendly match set up by Lionel Messi, scoring a 45 yard lob against the helpless goalkeeper

Next season Neymar will be joining forces with Argentine superstar Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona, but at the moment, the Brazilian forward is on his holidays -- and last night, Neymar was on the opposing side to Lionel Messi in a Charity friendly match. On one side of the field you had Messi and Friends, and all-star team, captained by our very own Lionel Messi, and on the other, you had Neymar and Friends, another all-star team, this time captained by, you guessed it, Neymar.

And as is always the case, this friendly match was packed with goals and entertainment -- the final score in Peru was 8-5 to Messi's team -- but the unquestionable highlight was the final goal of the match, as Neymar delighted the crowd with an audacious lob from just inside the opposition's half. Assisted by Barcelona's Dani Alves, Neymar displayed fantastic technique, perfectly executing this spectacular effort to bring the deficit to three. Full highlights of the match can be found below:
