Neymar stopped stewards from ushering a little South African boy off the pitch following Brazil’s 5-0 win in Soweto. The video of the striker, who scored a hattrick, taking the child in his arms over to his team-mates has gone viral online. Neymar became the 12th Brazilian to score 30 international goals, and he did it in just 47 games.

Brazil defeated South Africa 5-0 at Soccer City stadium in Soweto. Oscar opened the scoring for the World Cup hosts before Neymar scored a hattrick to become the 12th Brazilian player to score over 30 goals. It was the 22-year-old’s second triple of his career. Team-mate Fernandinho also got on the score-sheet with a thunderous effort as Felipe Scolari’s side fine tune preparations for the World Cup on home soil.
