Not content with having more than played his part in Barcelona's treble-winning season, combining with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to net 122 goals for the Catalans, Neymar is still attempting to find the net on as many occasions as possible - even when he's behind the goal.

Video has emerged of the 23-year-old Brazilian doing something utterly ridiculous while training for the Copa America this summer.

Picking up a ball from the behind the net, he kicks the ball up in the air over the bar. Yet he hits the ball with just the right combination of spin and force that the object doesn't bounce on the other side of the goal and move away from the goal line - but rather into the net itself.

Not that Neymar is that impressed with his immense skill. The Brazilian forward takes one glance at the ball rolling into the net and then gets on his way.

Brazil's coach Dunga said that Neymar, the captain of the national side, will start in the friendly on 9 June against Honduras, and after this video, it is not hard to see why.

Neymar will be key to Brazil's attack as they prepare to open the Copa America campaign against Peru on 14 June before playing Colombia, a repeat of last year's World Cup quarter-final.
