Sexy Samba skills

Sexy Samba skills.

Brazil’s quest for retribution following their horrendous World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany faces it’s first lengthy competitive test at the Copa America.

The Selecao required a last-minute winner from Douglas Costa to overcome Peru in their opening match but Dunga’s side have now won their last 11 games and they have a certain Barcelona striker to thank.

Much like last summer, it was Neymar that was their talisman after he scored to level the game on 5 minutes but he wasn’t done yet.

Take a look at this piece of skill that’s certain to recall memories of another gifted Brazilian that played at the Camp Nou, the sublime Ronaldinho.

If that wasn’t enough of a telling contribution then this assist for Douglas Costa certainly is. The weight, vision and technique on this pass is incredible.

Here’s what the Brazilian had to thread the ball through. He must have been taking notes from Iniesta.
