With two remarkable goals against Germany Neymar or, more properly, Neymar da Silva a Santos Jr., proved not only that he is one of the best players of the world but also that Brazil has the best Olympic team. Although the Brazilian goalkeeper Weverton was able to stop Nils Petersen's fifth shot, the crowning moment of the game was when Neymar when, with an unstoppable shot, assured the golden medal for Brazil . It was the greatest achievement in Neymar's remarkable career.

Brazil's Neymar cries as he kneels down to celebrate with teammate goalkeeper Weverton after scoring the decisive penalty kick during the final match of the men's Olympic football tournament between Brazil and Germany at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Saturday Aug. 20, 2016. Brazil won the gold medal on a penalty shootout.

After his penalty earned Brazil a memorable triumph, securing the only international honour the country had yet to win, the 24-year-old told SporTV: "Today I have become a champion, and I give up the captain's armband.

"It was an honour to be captain, but from today I stop being captain. I will send a message to [senior coach] Tite that, from now, he can look for another captain."

Brazil coach wants Neymar to remain captain

I said to Neymar that he should celebrate for now and worry about (the captaincy) later. Being a leader involves many aspects. He (Neymar) is a leader on the pitch. There is also the aspect of talking in public. We will see.
