WATCH: Neymar pulls off stunning rainbow flick in Ligue 1 match

Neymar gets a lot of flak sometimes

Some people believe that he is something of a primadonna who dives too much and complains equally often, but when it comes down to brass tacks Neymar is also a very good footballer.

While he may do some undesirable things on the football pitch, he can also do things which few other players are capable of.

He proved this on Saturday during Paris Saint-Germain's home match against Angers in Ligue, a match which the hosts won 3-1.


Facing up against full-back Vincent Manceau, Neymar decided to have a little bit of fun with the 29-year-old, so he did, by doing an absolutely perfectly executed rainbow flick over two defenders' heads.

To be fair, it didn't have much an impact in any real sense. It was not an assist, or a goal, nor did it lead to any sort of tangible chance at all, but it was very fun to see, and really that is as important as anything.
