Neymar's assist from a corner was more impressive than any of his goals for PSG
Something tells us he's too good to play in France.
Neymar may have already outgrown Ligue 1. The Brazilian has only played two games for Paris Saint-Germain in the French top flight, but he is proving that much better than his opponents it's starting to look like he's taking the piss.
The world's most expensive player scored twice against Toulouse on Sunday night in PSG's 6-2 win. Neymar's second goal was equal parts brilliant skill and horrendous defending.
The same can be said of PSG's fifth goal.
Layvin Kurzawa scored with a fantastic bicycle kick, but it was overshadowed by the amazing delivery by Neymar. The Brazilian drilled a cross into the penalty area with the outside of his right foot, putting it on a plate for Kurzawa to acrobatically score.
Fantastic technique by both players.
Here's another look at it:
However, like for Neymar's second goal and a lot of his future goals in France, the defending was pretty abject.
But Neymar has turned on the style since his world record transfer from Barcelona. He can only beat the opponents that are put in front of him, and it looks like he's enjoying himself.
Expect more examples of Neymar being too good for French football as the season progresses. People were very impressed by his delivery for Kurzawa's goal.
