At the same time Messi was scoring five goals for Barcelona in the European Champions League, Neymar was terrorising Inter in the Copa Libertadores, South Americaâ€™s equivalent competition.Â Neymar scored three goals in Santosâ€™ 3-1 win. No point in me describing them in words. Take a look at the highlights below:
Elsewhere in last weekâ€™s Libertadores:
- Fluminense beat Boca Juniors in the Bombonera stadium. Fred and ex-Barcelona man Deco scored for Flu.
- Flamengo scrapped a narrow in against Emelec. VÃ¡gner Love scored for them but Ronaldinho was roundly booed by Flamengo fans who are unhappy with his current form.
- Corinthians beat Nacional (Paraguay) 2-0 with goals from Danilo and Jorge Henrique
- Vasco narrowly beat Allianza Lima at home 3-2 with another goal from centre back DedÃ©. DedÃ© is amazing just in case anybody didnâ€™t already know that! Should be starting for the seleÃ§Ã£o.
So, letâ€™s hear it for Neymar. Leave a comment.
