So, uh, Neymar is back, you guys.
The Brazil star painted a sad figure at the World Cup this summer after breaking a bone in his back vs Colombia and missing the Selecao’s infamous last two contests.
Just about six weeks later, Neymar returned to the pitch in Barcelona’s 6-0 friendly win over Club Leon, and boy did he show up.
First, he converted Andres Iniesta’s pass with a lovely chip over goalkeeper Will Yarbrough, before scoring on a cheeky little back-heel finish just before the halftime whistle. The fact Luis Suarez made his Barcelona “debut” was reduced to a footnote on the night.
