Neymar scores with back heel, second goal of the game (Video)

FC Barcelona are playing Club Leon in a friendly and while the game might be meaningless, it is interesting for two reasons. First, it is the return of Brazilian superstar Neymar, who injured a vertebrae in his back during the 2014 World Cup, ending the tournament for him.

Second, Luis Suarez can play since his four-month ban was reduced to allow him to train and play in friendlies, which this game is.

Neymar has been the star of the game so far, setting up Lionel Messi to score with a header early in the game. That goal gave Barcelona the lead. Later in the first half, Neymar chipped the keeper to give Barcelona an insurance goal.

Later in the first half Neymar scored a second goal to extend the lead. This one was just as beautiful. He tips a ball out of the air around the keeper coming out to make a play. The goal keeper does get a hand on it, but not enough to stop the play. Neymar then runs past the ball, back heels it into the goal as the keeper gets off the ground.
