Neymar Scores Worldie In Brazil Training, Celebrates Like Cristiano Ronaldo
The general consensus is that Neymar views Cristiano Ronaldo as a rival but the PSG man gave a nod to the five-time Ballon d'Or after scoring a worldie in Brazil training.
After a World Cup campaign that ultimately ended in disappointment at the quarter final stage, Tite's side are gearing up for games against the United States and El Salvador this week.
Several big-hitters like Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Marcelo and Ederson have been left out, but main man Neymar looked in fine form in training.
He curled an absolute beauty into the top bins and then proceeded to do his best CR7 impression, jumping in the air and then doing the "SIUUU!" celebration we are accustomed to seeing Ronaldo produce every time he finds the net.
Ney or CR7? :eyes:

Neymar likely won't be replicating the celebration in a game anytime soon, but being honest we're absolutely fine with that. There's no way he's topping his trolling of Nimes supporters when he opened the scoring against them in a 4-2 win over the weekend.
Some Nimes supporters had a banner mocking Neymar's whining and after the £198 million man finished off a flowing team move, he immediately rubbed salt in the wounds by doing a crying gesture to the home fans and then posing in front of THAT banner.
