Crazy Skillz With Neymar

Submit your own videos to #CrazySkillsAward

There are few football players in the world who can come close to skill and trickery of Neymar Jr. After helping Santos to their first continental title since 1963 in 2011 he was twice named as the South American Footballer of the year, an accolade he was awarded with again only a year later. With a multitude of awards and titles to his name he was then given the opportunity to showcase his talents at one of the biggest teams in the world, as he secured what was rumoured to be a €86.2million transfer to Barcelona.

In just over 3 years at the Nou Camp Neymar has lifted both the La Liga title and Copa del Rey cup twice, as well as winning the UEFA Champions League. For someone who is playing in one of the most demanding leagues and competing against the very top teams across Europe, his goal scoring record is truly staggering. With a total of 58 goals in 97 appearances he's cemented his place within the the rankings as one of the top strikers to ever grace the sport, and one of the most skilful.

To try and give fans a chance of keeping up with Neymar's slight of feet and lightening fast flicks and tricks, electronic giants Panasonic has recently film some of his phenomenal showboating with their 360 Observation Cam. The cutting edge filming equipment gives viewers the ability at the fingertips to zoom in/out and slow down/speed on footage, and the function to rotate around a multitude of different angles.

As part of their Crazy Skillz campaign Panasonic are also inviting players to submit their own attempts of some of football's most kick ass tricks. Provided with the chance to study their selected skill through the lens of a 360 Observation Cam in order to really help perfect execution, selected videos will then be chosen to appear within a compilation alongside Neymar him self.

Take a look at the video above for more details, or head on over to the Panasonic Crazy Skillz website for more details.
