Neymar shows off a mesmerizing bit of skill at Brazil training

The World Cup — and particularly that little 7-1 defeat at the hands of eventual champs Germany — certainly was a forgettable tournament for the Brazilian national team.

We wouldn’t blame the Brazilians if they still felt a bit of an emotional hangover from the letdown ahead of their friendly on Friday against Colombia.

It looks like they’re in good spirits, though. And how couldn’t they be with Neymar (perhaps the one Brazilian who had a commendable World Cup), showing off his deft footwork in training.

The craziest bit happens at about the 13-second mark. That’s the type of handling we couldn’t even accomplish in a video game.

We’re just glad Neymar is happy again.

USMNT’s Jay DeMerit gets DeMarried

A big congratulations goes out to Jay DeMerit for marrying former Olympic gold medalist Ashleigh McIvor this weekend!

The former USA regular and Vancouver Whitecaps captain tied the knot with McIvor Sunday in Whistler, B.C. — not far from where McIvor won the first ever gold medal in women’s ski cross for Canada in the 2010 Olympics.

DeMerit recorded the event with the instagram picture above, which was captioned with the phenomenal #DeMarried hashtag.

After rupturing his Achilles tendon on opening day of the MLS season, DeMerit is on the verge of making his comeback, just in time for the Whitecaps’ playoff push. Hopefully, though, he’s still just a couple days away so that he can enjoy a short honeymoon!
