Caldwell salutes Neymar
Neymar was the star of the show with both goals in Sunday’s 2-0 win
over Scotland in their international friendly at Emirates Stadium.
The 19-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young talents
in the world and Wigan defender Caldwell admits the Santos ace is
destined for greatness. Caldwell reckons it’s only a matter of time
before the frontman – the subject of a £30million Chelsea bid
last summer – becomes the next World Player of the Year. “Neymar is
tremendous and he showed that,” admitted Caldwell. “For someone at
the age of 19 years old to be that good and that composed was
outstanding. “He’s got a big, big future ahead of him. “His
movement and awareness of others to bring them into the game is
good for someone as young. “It was his composure which also struck
me. Usually when you get boys that age, they have loads of talent,
but choose the wrong option at times and are a little immature.
“But he was the opposite and two goals show the quality.”
