Gabriel Jesus And Neymar Jr Show Off Their Skills In 5-A-Side Game In Brazil

Aakarsh / 12 July 2017

Brazil is the land of football and it does not come as a surprise that some of the most gifted players in the world of football hail from this portion of the universe.

The likes of Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos are just a few of the many exceptional talents that have come out of the country in the last three decade but most of them are now no longer playing the game at the highest level.

But Brazil now has its own set of superstars who are ready to take the world of football by storm.

Barcelona star Neymar Jr is one such player who is hogging all the headlines in the pre-season.

The Brazilian star is expected to be back in Spain with his Catalan teammates as they get ready for the pre-season but he did not miss out on one final opportunity to entertain the crowd.

Neymar, accompanied by Manchester City superstar Gabriel Jesus took it to a local 5-a side charity match, and they did not miss out on an opportunity to showboat their skills.

The trick shot took place during the Neymar Jr’s Five a side tournament.

The winning team from the competition was given the chance to strut their stuff in a game against Neymar and Jesus.

It was no surprise that Neymar’s side managed to win the game 3-2 and again, unsurprisingly, both Neymar and Gabriel were on the score sheet in the tie.

The Brazilian skipper was all praises for the young Gabriel and felt that he has great future in the sport.

“The kid is a crack, a phenomenon,” he said.

As well as being at the highest level on the pitch, off the pitch he is exceptional, too.”
