Santos beat Sao Paulo on their own patch at the weekend, with Neymar scoring a hat-trick to take him over the 100-goal mark for Santos (102 in 180 games) at the age of 20 and put him in third spot in the club’s all-time top scorer list.
As well as the matchball, Neymar was also given a little memento of the game by Sao Paulo defender Ivan Piris – who, having been sent hither and thither one too many times by the Santos forward’s largely superfluous stepover routine, duly ended the charade by booting him clean up in the air…
So satisfying. Everyone likes to see a cocky little swine get put on their arse once in a while. It’s universal.
