Neymar is at it again, and so are we.

Earlier this week we brought you video of the budding Brazilian superstar doing his thing. The other day, that meant three goals for Brazil in an 8-0 rout of China in an international friendly.

Now it's back to league play with Santos. This time, we're pointing you to video of Neymar's latest solo special, a brilliant run and chipped shot in the Brazilian league.

The goal was Santos' second in a 2-0 victory over Flamengo on Wednesday night in the Brasileirão. The video, which appears above, serves as the Set Piece clip of the day. Enjoy.

If the name Flamengo sounds familiar, it should. Neymar scored perhaps his most famous goal against Flamengo in 2011, and that little piece of art won the 2011 FIFA Puskas Award for the best goal in the world all year.

Wednesday's goal wasn't quite as special, but it still required loads of skill. Neymar accepted a pass in the midfield, blazed past a couple defenders down on the edge of the 18-yard box, got to the byline, and chipped a perfectly weighted shot over the keeper and into the net.

It was unstoppable, just like Neymar is becoming.

Is it just me, or can World Cup 2014 (in Brazil) not come fast enough? We might see something truly memorable two summers from now.

One more question, real quick: Where does this goal rank among Neymar's growing dossier of great goals? Let me know in the comments.
