On Wednesday, Neymar put on the greatest individual display in the history of Ligue 1. The Brazilian scored four goals, including a sublime free kick and ridiculous solo effort, while adding two assists in PSG’s 8-0 win over Dijon. Anyway, his fourth goal was roundly jeered by supporters inside the Parc des Princes and that’s all anybody’s really talking about now. It’s sensational, it’s surreal and it’s sadly understandable.
Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona a bajillion dollars for Neymar. But how much is Nike paying for this Neymar celebration?
Neymar clearly is a Nike man. This much was made clear when he celebrated a goal Wednesday by placing his boot on his head and dancing around for all to see.
Paris Saint-Germain are up 3-0 on Stade Rennes in the Coupe de France before they pull this, and you probably feel some kind of way about that. You should, because it’s ultimately meaningless in the face of what we’re building up to: the greatest Round of 16 match in the history of the UEFA Champions League. That’s the back-to-back champions Real Madrid vs. this record-setting PSG side.
This Pique-Neymar interview will bring tears to the eyes of many Barca nostalgics who still cannot understand the Brazilian star’s decision to leave Barcelona for PSG.
Everyone remembers Lionel Messi's performance in El Clasico back in April. He scored two goals: one incredible dribble goal and a late winner because of course he scored a late winner.
