VIDEO: Neymar scores amazing penalty - Will he do this at the World Cup?

Brazilian star Neymar has shown off his dazzling skills by scoring a cheeky penalty during the host nation's training session.

The Barcelona forward fakes to use his favoured right foot but fools the goalkeeper by poking the ball into the opposite corner with his left foot instead.

Despite some saying this particular set of Brazilian players aren't as naturally gifted as past generations, the former Santos man is the exception and is the Selecao's great hope going into the tournament.

Last summer, Neymar starred in the Confederations Cup and won the golden ball, scoring four goals in the process.

He scored the opening goal of the tournament with a beautiful half volley against Japan and was the best player on the pitch as Brazil ran out 3-0 winners against current World and European champions Spain in the final. 

Brazil fans will be hoping he can repeat his stunning performances in last year's dress rehearsal and lead his country to their sixth World Cup Crown.
