When you think Neymar and Robinho, you think Brazilian flair and loads of goals. That’s precisely what spectators were treated to when the duo played against each other on Thursday.
The charity match in Brazil, which donated funds to the tragedy-struck team Chapecoense, featured an incredible 22 goals with Neymar’s side winning 13-9.
The Barcelona star scored four goals himself from the bench and produced one of the standout moments in the match when he mesmerised Fred with an audacious dribble.
Despite Fred’s pleas to be spared humiliation, Neymar couldn’t resist the temptation to wow the crowd and proceeded to do just that.
AC Milan legend Kaka also played in the encounter along with Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and his Olympic team-mate Luan.
The match also saw Brazilian TV stars and other celebrities participate, including Formula One driver Felipe Massa.
