Neymar scores an acrobatic goal in Brazil training pre Bosnia-Herzegovina friendly

neymar mowa Neymar scores an acrobatic goal in Brazil training pre Bosnia Herzegovina friendlyThe Selecao take centre stage this evening, effectively kicking off two days of international action with their friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina in the AFG Arena in Switzerland.

Brazil’s predicted line-up (listed below) looks set to feature a host of brilliant talent and David Luiz… Whilst Mano Menezes’ side always produce outstanding attacking football, there is plenty to whet the appetite with Neymar, Ronaldinho and Leando Damiao all predicted to start.

In the build-up to the friendly, Neymar talked of what it was like to play in the same side as the gap-toothed wonder: “I still see the idol Ronaldinho. We have conversations that are not so friendly, because I am ashamed he is an idol of mine and I’m ashamed to stand by him. But whenever we meet, he treats me well, and we talk. He can break the ice completely, gives tips about football, about life. He went through a lot. He is an idol that puts you at ease.”

In training for the encounter today, Neymar predictably produced a fine acrobatic effort, converting a Marcelo cross past Julio Cesar.

Predicted line-ups: Brazil : Julio César, Daniel Alves, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Marcelo, Sandro Ranieri, Fernandinho, Hernanes, Neymar, Ronaldinho, Leandro Damião.

Bosnia-Herzegovina: Asmir Begovic, Emir Spahic, Sanel Jahic, Mensur Mujdza, Elvir Rahimic, Sejad Salihovic, Senad Lulic, Haris Medunjanin, Miralem Pjanic, Edin Dzeko, Vedad Ibisevic.
