Brazil absolutely destroyed Honduras in the Rio 2016 semifinal at the historic and beautiful Maracan’ã Stadium, and Barcelona superstar Neymar was the star of the show.

After scoring the fastest goal in the history of the Olympics just 14 seconds into the first half, Neymar recorded two assists, one to striker Gabriel Jesus and another to center-back Marquinhos. Then, Luan won a penalty for Brazil, and the Seleção captain did not waste the chance of completing a brace:

Neymar is up to three goals in the tournament, all of them in the knockout stages. After a poor group phase, the Brazil skipper caught fire in the biggest moment and lead his team into the Olympic final. Now, Brazil await the winner of the second semifinal between Germany and Nigeria. The Gold Medal game is on Saturday, and Neymar and Co. hope to finish first in the football tournament for the first time in Brazil history.
