'New Neymar' Neilton Is Doppelganger, Bags a Hat-Trick for Santos

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterNovember 23, 2013

Neymar may be just 21 years old for one thing and only left Santos for Barcelona this summer for another, but it looks like Santos may have already found the "new Neymar."

Neilton not only finishes like Neymar—as he demonstrated with a sensational treble in a Junior Copa Sao Paulo match this week—but as you can see, he bears an almost uncanny resemblance to him as well.

The 19-year-old denies any likeness with Neymar on the pitch, mind—although he does accept they've got a similar look.

In quotes from Neilton via Globoesporte (translated by Dirty Tackle):

They say that my skill and speed resemble his features a bit, but there's no way to compare. Only the face and hair are alike.

Make your own minds up.
