Neymar is insane

Neymar Jr. is an insane footballer. Very few players today combine his scoring prowess, passing ability and dribbling skills into an unstoppable package. The Barcelona star was breathtaking on Tuesday's Champions League victory against Celtic, scoring once and recording four assists to end the night as the Man of the Match.

Oh, and he did this, too:

Seriously, how amazing is that? The quick dribble to get away from the first marker before doing The Roulette to make the second one look like a fool. And the best part about this play is that it was meaningful, the only resource Neymar found to get away from the defenders, keep the ball and then make a pass to his teammate (Iniesta) to keep the play going.

Many critics (idiots, actually) go after Neymar for dribbling just to show off his skills, without actually adding anything to the game. This piece of skill added something to the game: it made us all smile.

What a player.
