Neymar struck a fantastic free-kick in World Cup hosts Brazil's easy 4-0 win for World Cup over Panama at the Estadio Serra Dourada on Tuesday.

The Brazilian poster boy opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark, curling an exquisite free-kick past Panama goalkeeper Oscar McFarlane after he himself was brought down on the edge of the box.

The 22-year-old Barcelona star almost set up a second minutes later, skipping past Felipe Baloy to the byline, but his cross was just too high for Fred.

Neymar struck a superb free-kick to open the scoring for Brazil

Dani Alves got the second goal Brazil thoroughly deserved with a fine solo strike from outside the box into the far corner that gave McFarlane no chance.

Neymar continued to run the show after the interval and it was his excellent back heel into the box that put Hulk through.

The Zenit Saint Petersburg forward latched onto it and produced a silky first-touch finish with the outside of his boot to make it 3-0.

Another marauding run by Neymar caused problems for Panama late on, with the ball eventually breaking for Chelsea midfielder Willian to lash home from just inside the penalty area.
