Opinion: Neymar Jr Is The Greatest Showman Football Has Ever Seen.

28 year old Neymar Jr was the real definition of pure entertainment in their semi-finals game against Peru. His dribbles, nutmegs, flicks and rabonas, are the best showmanship you can ever see in football, he is just a magical player, the game needs more showmen like him.

Brazil made it into the finals of the Copa America for the second time in a row, thanks to a mouth-watering nutmeg assist from Neymar, which was converted by Paqueta. If Brazil wins this Copa America, Neymar will become the first player in Selecao history to win Copa America, Confederations Cup and Olympics. 


So far in the Copa America tournament, he has scored 2 goals and contributed 3 assists. He has the most dribbles per match (5.2), he has created the most big chances (9), won the most key possession in the midfield (12) and completed the most key passes (3.4). There is a strong possibility that Neymar will be facing his former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi, in the finals of the tournament (should Argentina go ahead to beat Colombia). That will be the first time they will be facing each other since he left Camp Nou.
