Grading Neymar's Performance for Brazil vs. England

Neymar was unlucky with this free kick

Fresh from long drawn out transfer negotiations with Barcelona and an emotional goodbye to Santos, tonight's Brazil vs. England match afforded us all the opportunity to study Neymar getting back to doing what he does best.

Would he light up the newly refurbished—but not quite fully finished—Maracana Stadium?

Or would the more physical English style dilute his performance to such an extent that he would be largely ineffective—as at Wembley a few short months ago?

In assessing various areas of Neymar's performance, I've used the grading system below.

Let's take a look at how he fared in tonight's game.

A—Absolute perfection

B—Nearly perfect performance

C—Very high production

D—Good production

E—Above average

F—Average performance

G—Worse than average

H—Very little production

I—No production whatsoever

J—Absolutely awful
