Neymar Jr.

Five years ago today, Neymar Jr. scored the goal that gave him FIFA’s Puskás Award

On July 27 of 2011, Vila Belmiro set the stage for one of Neymar Jr.’s most beautiful work of art. Five years ago today, the santista player scored against Flamengo, the goal that would change his career and would receive the award of best goal of the year, giving the FIFA Puskás Award.

In a match for the Campeonato Brasileiro, when the player still played in Santos FC, the ‘Peixe’ made an incredible game against Flamengo, at Vila Belmiro. The santista team may have lost the match by 5-4, but Neymar Jr., besides scoring two goals, also scored the one that would take him to a new step in his career.

The current FC Barcelona’s number 11, was always seen as a big promise for football, ever since he was a kid. After being awarded with the Puskás Award of Best Goal of the Year, at FIFA Gala ceremony, the athlete proved, in a worldwide level, that he was a great player and that it wouldn’t be his last time out there, surrounded by many football giants.

Besides 2011, Neymar Jr. was also nominated in 2010, 2012 and 2013. Once for the National Brazilian Team (2013) and three times with Santos FC. The award was created in 2009 and the athlete was the first Brazilian player to win the prize. Brazil only got to the top again in 2015, with Wendell Lira.

Now in FC Barcelona, elected as the third best player of the world last year, Neymar Jr. continues to paint great works of art in the pitch. And who knows? Maybe one of these will help him to become the first athlete to win the Puskás twice.
