Neymar scored a wonderful free-kick to give Brazil an early 1-0 lead against Colombia in the quarter-final of the Rio Olympics.

 

The onus was on Neymar to produce some individual brilliance to push hosts Brazil closer to an Olympic medal after a lacklustre group stage. The Barcelona superstar delivered, scoring with a beautiful floating free-kick from long range to give Brazil the lead in the first quarter of the game. The Samba boys ultimately won by a scoreline of 2-0 to seal their spot in the semi-final at Rio.

The Barcelona superstar was then booked later on in the game for starting a fight that included players from both sides.
