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.”
