The Neymar superstar continued to shine bright as he scored a goal and created the second as Brazil beat Mexico 2-0 in their Group A match and consequently sealed their place in the 2013 Confederations Cup semifinal.
The result saw Mexico exit the Confederations Cup with a game to go, but the big talking point of the night was the ultimate class of Neymar.
The new Barcelona man was dazzling from the first whistle and gave Brazil the lead in the ninth minute with superb goal - a sensational volley with his left boot into the corner of the net form just inside the box.
Neymar continued to be a threat the entire night and was unlucky not to double his country’s lead in the 23rd minute as he chested the ball under control with some immaculate skill before firing narrowly over from roughly 14-yards out.
The second half was more of the same as Neymar set up Hulk with a golden scoring chance in the 55th minute, but the Brazilian forward fired over from close range and with just the keeper to beat.
Neymar, though, was not content to only have the first say of the match after scoring the goal, but insisted on having the last say as well as he danced past two defenders on the left flank before setting up Jo with a simple finish in the 93rd minute of the match to confirm their victory.
The result took Brazil to six points in Group A and confirmed their place in the last four of the competition.
