Neymar's New Mercurials Lead Directly To Brazil's Opening Goal Of SheBelieves Cup

Brazilian football forward Andressa Alves da Silva, who plays for Primera Division club FC Barcelona, received an honorary gift to represent her home country in the SheBelieves Cup.

From one superstar to another, Neymar sent Andressa a pair of his new Nike Mercurial Vapor 360 Elite boots to wear in style during her upcoming international matches.

The cleats he sent must have had some Neymar powers since Andressa netted the lonesome goal for Brazil in its first match against England. With the help of Brazilian legend Marta of course, who was fouled in the box and received a PK. Wearing Neymar’s cleats, Andressa finished calm and collectively. 

Even though Brazil did not receive the result they were looking for in a 2-1 defeat to England, at least Andressa had the fanciest cleats on the pitch. Neymar's boots and Brazil will be seen again when they face Japan on Saturday at 2 p.m.

England won thanks to these goals from Ellen White and Beth Mead. White is the all-time leading goal scorer in SheBelieves Cup action. Japan and the United States were to play in the match following in Philadelphia.
