Neymar: Tipped for stardom
Scotland star Gary Caldwell believes Brazil star Neymar is destined for greatness after his impressive showing against the Scots.
Neymar was the star of the show with both goals in Sunday's 2-0 win over Scotland in their international friendly at Emirates Stadium.
The 19-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in the world and Wigan defender Caldwell admits the Santos ace is destined for greatness.
Caldwell reckons it's only a matter of time before the frontman - the subject of a £30million Chelsea bid last summer - becomes the next World Player of the Year.
"Neymar is tremendous and he showed that," admitted Caldwell.
"For someone at the age of 19 years old to be that good and that composed was outstanding.
"He's got a big, big future ahead of him.
"His movement and awareness of others to bring them into the game is good for someone as young.
"It was his composure which also struck me. Usually when you get boys that age, they have loads of talent, but choose the wrong option at times and are a little immature.
"But he was the opposite and two goals show the quality."
