Neymar Nets Barca’s First Goal In Thailand Friendly

Brazilian player, Neymar scored his first goal for Barcelona as the Spanish champions defeated Thailand XI 7-1 in a friendly in Bangkok on Wednesday.

Neymars opened the scoring after only 11 minutes, nudging home a low cross from Cesc Fabregas in front of a crowd of just over 48,000, reports Reuters.

The 57 million-euro signing from Santo started in a front three with world player of the year Lionel Messi, who scored twice, and Spain forward Pedro, who hit a hat-trick.

“Friendly games like these help me to see different possibilities, variations, but clearly the idea is that he (Neymar) progresses,” new Barca coach Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino told a news conference.

“From the game against Santos to today he has improved.
