Looks like Santos didn’t exactly break the mould when they forged Neymar, rather they kept the mould, rinsed it out and used it to produce another cookie-cutter, fleet-footed, jinky, rinky and indeed dinky left-sided forward in the spindly form of Neilton: the 19-year-old who has scored thrice already since being promoted into Neymar’s void – the third of which being this eerily Neymar-esque goal scored against Portuguesa last weekend…

Not only does he play exactly like him, this Neilton character even looks like Neymar – right down to the crap “partially-maimed possum” mullet…


Freaky. The clones are walking among us.
