Many will remember how Neymar lifted a small South African boy into the air after a friendly against Bafana Bafana, but not many know that Mzansi is among the opponents he most enjoys scoring against.
The 23-year-old moved up to fifth spot in Brazil's all-time scoring ranking and is on course to break Pele's record, which stands at 77 strikes.
Neymar scored his 46th Selecao goal in a 4-1 friendly victory over the United States on Tuesday.
The FC Barcelona superstar seems to score more against certain countries than others and South Africa are among them.
Neymar's favourite victim is Japan, against whom he has already scored as many as seven goals in just three games.
They are followed by Tuesday's opponents USA, with his brace in that match taking his tally to four goals in three games against them.
Bafana Bafana sit in joint-third spot with China, with the Brazil captain having scored a hat-trick against both countries. He also featured in a 1-0 win over South Africa in 2012, but didn't score on that occasion.
Overall, Neymar has scored 35 goals in 50 friendly matches, three at the Copa America, four at the Confederations Cup and four at the World Cup.
He is only two goals behind Brazil legend Zico (48) and also has Romario (55) and Ronaldo (62) in his sights.
