Neymar may have lost out in the battle to take penalties at the Parc des Princes, but there will now be no doubt about who's on free-kicks following his spectacular effort during Paris Saint-Germain's 6-2 demolition of Bordeaux.

The Brazilian made headlines a few weeks ago for all the wrong reasons as he attempted to publicly undermine Edinson Cavani, the club's usual penalty-taker.

Cavani held firm and took the spot-kick and missed, and reports had recently suggested the Uruguayan was offered €1m to surrender duties to Neymar, which have been denied by the club.

The former Barcelona superstar can take some solace from that fact that he'll be allowed to take free-kicks from now on though, after scoring an absolute screamer against Bordeaux at the weekend.

The 25-year-old found himself just shy of 30 yards out, and whipped a terrific strike into the top left corner from a central position.

It truly was a fantastic hit, and arguably no 'keeper in the world would have saved it, and for Unai Emery, it will be difficult to look past the star for all free-kicks in the future.

PSG romped to victory 6-2 in the end, and are currently top of the pile in Ligue 1 by three points ahead of nearest rivals Monaco.
