Neymar continued his amazing international scoring record when he scored four goals for Brazil against Japan in Singapore on Tuesday. 

The Barcelona man calmly rounded the goalkeeper and slotted home after a fine through ball from Diego Tardelli to give Brazil the lead.

He then doubled Brazil's advantage with another coolly taken strike—this time it was Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho who provided the lovely through ball.

The Coutinho-Neymar double act combined again in the 77th minute, as Neymar completed his hat-trick when he rolled in Coutinho's saved effort:

Number four soon followed as the Barcelona man delighted the fans with a header from Kaka's cross.
