Neymar dazzles in Brazil win

Brazil led by a sparkling performance by Neymar came from a goal behind to beat Belarus 3-1 at a packed Old Trafford on Sunday to ensure a spot in the Quarter Finals 

According to reports, Barcelona are the latest leading club to have expressed an interest in the 20-year-old and it was easy to see why as, thanks largely to Neymar's brilliance, they qualified for the quarter-finals of the Olympic tournament with a match to spare. 

On the pitch though, Belarus took a shock lead in front of a crowd of more than 66,000 at the home ground of English giants Manchester United. 

But from then on Brazil battled back in this Group C clash, with Neymar setting the seal on a superb display with a 65th minute free-kick bent over the wall and beyond the reach of diving Belarus keeper Aleksandr Gutor. 

Brazil, seeking a first Olympic gold medal, were 1-0 down when Belarus's Renan Bardini Bressan opened the scoring with an eighth minute header. 

However, Neymar then took centre stage, crossing for AC Milan star Pato to equalise, then putting Brazil in front and also setting up Oscar for the clinching third goal.
