Neymar assists on goal by splitting defenders with amazing move (Video)
Neymar had a goal and an assist in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Mexico at the FIFA Confederations Cup on Wednesday, and his impressive assist had everyone talking.
Neymar scooted inside the box, split two defenders and passed to Jo for the country’s second goal, which iced the game during stoppage time. It was a beautiful play by Neymar, and it got fans talking about how great it will be when Neymar, who signed a five-year deal with Barcelona, gets to play with Lionel Messi next season.
USWNT star Alex Morgan tweeted her impressions of the play:
Wow Neymar. That was dirty.

Luckily for Neymar, that goal more than makes up for his flop earlier in the game:
