Neymar, Paris Saint-Germain, PSG

According to ex-Brazil star Ronaldo, Neymar's world record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona was a step backwards in his career.

"He's at PSG now, but sports-wise, this decision he's taken is a step backwards," the 2002 World Player of the Year said in an interview with former international Zico's youtube channel.

"He was at Barcelona and he left for PSG. I played at Barca, but I left for Inter Milan when the Italian league was a lot more competitive."

Brazil star Neymar scored the fastest goal in Olympic history when he gave the hosts the lead after just 15 secondsin their semi-final with Honduras on Wednesday.

Brazil has barely got over its World Cup disaster and now it is counting on Barcelona star Neymar to finally deliver a treasured first football Olympic gold medal.

Olympic gold is the only international title to elude Brazil in an illustrious history that has seen A Selecao win five World Cups.

And Brazilian football is in desperate need of a pick-me-up after the humiliating 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany at their own World Cup two years ago and a group stage exit at the Copa America Centenario in June.
