Neymar made his return from his devastating back injury during the World Cup on Monday and proved his health immediately.

During the Joan Gamper Trophy match against reigning Mexican Clausura champs Leon, Neymar reminded all of his skill with an assist and a goal (his first of two) 12 minutes into the match.

Later on in the first half, he showed that not only is he healthy, but his swagger is in fine form, too, with a confident finish for his second.

Welcome back, Neymar.
