Neymar looked right at home nailing a free kick in a friendly vs. Panama on Tuesday.

Neymar is going to be counted on to deliver for Brazil in a big way this summer, and if Tuesday is any indication, he's just about ready to step back into the spotlight after helping the Selecao to the FIFA Confederations Cup title on home soil last summer. 

Neymar converted a sublime free kick in the 27th minute of a friendly vs. Panama in Goias, calmly dispatching the straightaway effort from about 25 yards out of the reach of Canaleros goalkeeper Oscar McFarlane. He added an assist to Hulk as part of Brazil's routine 4-0 victory in the nation's penultimate game before opening the World Cup on June 12 vs. Croatia in Sao Paulo. Prior to that, Brazil will play Serbia on Friday.
