Brazilian soccer star Neymar scored possibly the prettiest of his career for FC Barcelona in their 3-0 victory over Villarreal on Sunday.

The 23-year-old scored two goals in the match, but his second tally to make it 3-0 was the crown jewel. Luis Suarez crossed the ball into the centre, and Neymar took control, kicked it to his side, spun around and finished by beating goalkeeper Alphonse Areola. A work of art.

Suarez scored the other goal for Barcelona, which moved to the top of La Liga with the victory.
