The teenage sensation scored twice in the international friendly at Emirates Stadium, but the event was tarnished somewhat after a banana was thrown on the pitch.

Neymar, who plays for Santos, has labelled the incident a one-off and he is now looking forward to returning home to Brazil.

In the past

When asked if he was planning an official complaint, he told Sky Sports News: "No. That's in the past.

"I'll go back to Brazil now and have already forgotten about it.

"If it was Scottish or if it wasn't, we cannot prove. It was one isolated case. Life goes on.

"I hope whoever did it, will think about it, and not do it again.

"It shouldn't happen anywhere. It doesn't take away my happiness of the performance."

Defence

The youngster came under fire from Scottish fans as they took exception to his perceived playacting, although he has defended his style of play.

"I did my job, went and played," he continued. "Supporters come to the stadium either to support you or go against you.

"The two times that I fell down, I got two knocks - one in knee and one in face. I did my job and have nothing to say after that.
