Brazil star Neymar has long been a video star here on Eurosport-Yahoo! with what feels like an endless stream of amazing goals, laden with dazzling skill. Oh, and he's still only 21.

This time, however, the Santos forward decided to spread the proverbial wealth and use his arsenal of tricks to tee up a great goal for a team-mate:

In this clip from his side's 2-0 Brazilian Cup win over Flamengo, Neymar unleashes a first-time final ball with a deft heel flick under pressure.

His role as 'giver' was then converted, fittingly enough, by Giva. The 20-year-old striker is yet another Santos prospect, and he finishes the move as stylishly as Neymar triggered it.
