In which Neymar plants an absolute scorcher of a peachy plum (scorched peach plum? Mmmm…) past Belarus in front of the Stretford End at the ‘Lympics yesterday…

Huzzah! How about this for a snapshot (taken from the Stretford End and found on Tumblr)?

Sadly, he really ain’t half bad in between all the risible fawning, posturing and feigning. Seriously, have you ever known a player adorn himself with so many accessories? Sweatbands, bowling gloves, hair string, etc, etc…

For the record, Brazil went on to win 3-1 to ease their way through to the quarter-finals, with Neymar, Pato and Oscar all doing the business to overturn Renan Bressan’s early opener.
