Brazil fans think they’ve found ‘next Neymar’ after outrageous Vinicius Jr skill

Brazil fans are convinced that they have found the next Neymar after being wowed by Vinicius Jr against Argentina.

The Real Madrid star left Nahuel Molina in the dust with an outrageous rainbow flick piece of skill.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, bitter rivals Brazil and Argentina ground out a 0-0 draw that saw both sides qualify for the World Cup next winter in Qatar.

But the real standout moment came from Vinicius Jr right in the corner flag.

With the scores locked and the forward in a difficult position, the 21-year-old decided to loft the ball over the Udinese player with a dazzling moment that Neymar would have been proud of.

The Paris Saint-Germain was missing from the match through injury so it was up to his teammate to provide the spark.

And after the rainbow flick, Vinicius Jr even set up Lucas Paqueta but the Lyon ace failed to hit the target – robbing his buddy of one of the best assists of all time.

It has led to Brazil fans believing they have found their new Neymar, whose injury problems have mounted up over the past few seasons.

One fan said: "Neymar was not there, but Vinicius was."

While another said: "Vinicius has Neymar tactics in his gene."

A third tweeted: "Wow Vinicius junior will be the next big thing in Brazil after Neymar what a skill."

And another posted: "O jogo bonito lives on, passing the baton from Neymar to Vinicius."

Vinicius Jr has been in fine form for Real Madrid this season and has been one of the best performers under Carlo Ancelotti.

The former Flamengo ace has nine goals in 16 appearances this campaign – including seven in La Liga.

His efforts, along with Karim Benzema, have made them the top scorers in the division and he is keeping the likes of Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale out of the side.
