Video: Neymar Catches Herrera With Vicious Nutmeg in Training

Nutmegs happen at every level of football but it’s so much more satisfying to watch when it’s Neymar Jr. doing it to another professional.

On Wednesday, the Brazilian looked to be in mid-season form during a training session as he slipped the ball between Ander Herrera’s legs and over to Marquinhos.

After the display of skill, Neymar turned to the camera to boast as Herrera yells in the background to turn off the camera (in a playful manner of course).

Luckily, there wasn’t a Ligue 1 referee nearby to give Neymar a yellow card for nutmegging an opponent. You’ll remember that earlier this season, the 28-year-old pulled off a rainbow flick that ultimately earned him a booking.

Hopefully, we’ll see more displays of skill from Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, and others this Sunday as PSG take on Le Havre in the first friendly before the Coupe de France final on July 24, and the Coupe de la Ligue final on July 31.
