导出博客文章SAO PAULO - Despite being only 22 years old, Neymar has already done enough to be ranked among Brazils greatest players of all time. Yeezy 350 Scontate .If he can keep it up, not even the great Pele may be standing in front of him when the youngster hangs up his boots.Brazils most promising player in decades is living up to expectations and has set himself on a path to greatness. He is enchanting with his brilliance and putting up numbers that few others have achieved at his age.He is already Brazils fifth-greatest scorer with 40 goals with the national team, and is well on pace to surpass Peles record of 77 as the nations most prolific scorer.If Neymar keeps scoring like this, he may break Peles record before he turns 28, in 2020. Pele was only two months older than Neymar when he netted his 40th goal. Only Pele and Romario have a better goal average than Neymar with the national team.I am very happy and proud of the progress of Neymar since he moved to play in Europe, Pele told The Associated Press in an email. This season, he keeps proving that hes one of the best players in the world. His growth as a player is fantastic and very beneficial for the Selecao.Among the few Brazilians who have more goals than Neymar are Zico, Romario and Ronaldo, longtime heroes in the land of soccer.Neymar reached his 40th goal after scoring four times in a friendly against Japan last month, and in the coming weeks he has a chance to move closer to Zicos mark of 48 goals when Brazil plays friendlies against Turkey and Austria. Romario has 55 goals in official matches with the Selecao, while Ronaldo had 62.We both came from Santos FC where we developed the same set of skills: creativity, passing, clinical finishing and, of course, insatiable hunger for goals, Pele told the AP.While Pele spent most of his career in Brazil, Neymar was quick to move to European soccer. He went straight from Santos to Barcelona, and it didnt take long for him to start succeeding alongside the likes of Lionel Messi.In Brazil, many say Neymar already has what it takes to become the best player in the world.Maybe it wont happen this year, but by next year he will be named the best in the world, Im certain, former Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira told Brazilian media recently. Hes already an idol.Neymar had just started to catch everyones attention when Zico, the star of Brazils 1982 World Cup team, said the youngster could become as good as Pele or Diego Maradona.He does things that Maradona was never able to do, Zico told local channel Esporte Interativo a few years ago. Maradona was as great as he was thanks to what he could do with his left foot, but he was never able to use his right leg effectively. Neymar has this ability to play well using both of his legs.But even Zico pointed to some of Neymars weaknesses at the time, including his less-than superb heading skills, an area where Pele thrived. Neymar also was criticized because of his dives and for failing to perform well with the national team early in his career.He has steadily improved in most areas and is a much more mature player today. Neymar has been diving less often and is behaving better both on and off the field. A season playing alongside the best in the world in Europe helped him progress rapidly.He also improved with the national team, becoming Brazils captain and the player carrying the fans hopes for a sixth world title.I dont know what my limit is, Neymar said after he surpassed Bebeto as Brazils fifth-best scorer. Im not thinking about surpassing Pele, thats not my goal. My goal is to keep scoring to help the national team and to help my teammates.Its not only the goals that make Neymar a special player.He lacks the physical strength that Pele used to have, and also doesnt seem to have the same above-average quick-thinking of the three-time World Cup champion, but Neymar has similar light-footed skills and uses his incredible speed to make up for some of his weaknesses. Like Pele, Ronaldo and Romario, he also has outstanding precision on his finishes.Neymar does have some advantages over players such as Ronaldo and Romario, who became stars mostly because of their goal-scoring ability. Neymar is not only about scoring goals, he is more of a playmaker, and uses his ball skills and speed to create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. Ronaldo used mostly his strength to get past defenders, while Romario was more about using good positioning inside the area and precise strikes.Contrary to a classic No. 10 such as Zico, who had outstanding ball control and was always trying to put his teammates in position to score, Neymar is constantly challenging defenders and using his dribbling skills to get near the opponents area.Although it remains too early to tell how Neymar will be compared to other Brazilian greats, its likely that his success will depend largely on whether he can win with Brazil and lead the five-time world champion back to its glory days.Pele had already won two World Cups by the time he was 22. Neymar missed out on a chance to win his first world title thanks in part to a back injury that ruled him out of some of this years tournament in Brazil.And there is always the chance that Neymar may never be as good as everyone expects, as happened to Robinho, who also was touted as a promising star when he transferred to European soccer as a 21-year-old. Also a Santos player, Robinho moved to Real Madrid instead of Barcelona, but never played up to expectations.He played in two World Cups and remains with the national team, but never became the type of star that Brazilians had hoped for after he started making headlines as a teenager.Only time will tell if Neymar will be more like Robinho or more like Pele.___Follow Tales Azzoni at Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia Italia . Harris has played in six games since joining the Argos in 2012, completing 17-of-35 passes for 256 yards and one touchdown. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 2020 . She was 30. The former British No. 1 died peacefully surrounded by family and friends, the Womens Tennis Association said on its website. The Kyiv-born Baltacha, who represented Britain at the 2012 London Olympics, was diagnosed with the illness in January, two months after retiring from tennis and only weeks after she married her long-time coach Nino Severino. . Paul, MN (SportsNetwork.BALTIMORE -- Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome was made the odds-on favourite at 3-5 on Wednesday for the Preakness Stakes, and he drew an inside post position in the 10-horse field that includes a filly for the first time in five years. Trained by Art Sherman and ridden by Victor Espinoza, California Chrome will break from the No. 3 post, which has produced 10 winners in the previous 138 runnings of the 1 3/16-mile race, the last being Prairie Bayou in 1993. "Three is fine with me," Sherman said. "Most of the speed is on the outside of me. If they go, they go, I can tuck in right behind them without any problems. I think my horse will perform." So does California Chromes co-owner Steve Coburn, who dared to look ahead. "One race at a time," he said, "but Im still thinking Triple Crown." If California Chrome wins on Saturday, next up would be the Belmont Stakes on June 7. Only 11 horses have swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont and none since 1978. California Chrome brings a five-race winning streak into the Preakness, having won that many by a combined 26 lengths. Still, his overwhelming odds surprised Sherman, a 77-year-old trainer who has never had a colt this good. "I never thought Id be that kind of price," he said. "I really thought Id be 6-5." Speedster Social Inclusion was the 5-1 second choice of new Pimlico oddsmaker Keith Feustle. The colt drew the No. 8 post. He skipped the Kentucky Derby and is one of seven new horses lining up to challenge California Chrome. "Im never afraid of nothing," owner Ron Sanchez said. "We have a great post position. We have slow horses to our outside. Thats going to help us a lot." Bayern and Ride On Curlin are the co-third choices at 10-1. Bayern, who ddrew the No. Yeezy 700 V2 Static Italia. 5 post, is trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, who is seeking a sixth Preakness win. Rosie Napravnik will ride the colt, trying to become the first female jockey to win the race. Ride On Curlin finished seventh in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago. Once again, Ride On Curlin drew an outside post, landing in the No. 10 spot after breaking from the 19th position in the Derby starting gate under Calvin Borel. This time, Joel Rosario will ride the colt. Borel has switched to filly Ria Antonia, who is the longest shot in the field at 30-1. "I wish she was 50-1," co-owner Ron Paolucci said. "The way she works and trains, she thinks shes 3-5." She will try to become the first filly to win the Preakness since Rachel Alexandra beat the boys in 2009. Like Rachel, Ria Antonia did not run in the Derby first. She finished sixth in the Kentucky Oaks, held the day before the Derby. After the Oaks, Ria Antonias owners switched trainers, dumping Baffert for Tom Amoss. "I always wanted to run in this race," Paolucci said. "My filly is a really big filly, shes really solid. Coming back in two weeks gives her an absolute edge. I know its really going to help her." General a Rod is the only other Derby horse to try the Preakness. He was 11th at Churchill Downs. There is a trio of 20-1 shots in the field. One of them, Kid Cruz, is trained by Linda Rice, giving the Preakness a female trainer, jockey and filly in the same race for the first time. The other 20-1 shots are Pablo Del Monte, who drew the No. 9 post, and Ring Weekend, who will break from the No. 4 spot. Illinois Derby winner Dynamic Impact drew the No. 1 post, putting the colt along the rail, a spot not favoured by most trainers who fear getting trapped inside. ' ' '
