Milan's left-back Mattia De Sciglio was impressed with Neymar's performance as Italy drew 2-2 against Brazil in Geneva.

The 20-year old full-back was assigned with the job of marking Neymar after the Brazil winger was moved to his side of the pitch.

He praised the Santos star after the game, De Sciglio said "Neymar is almost unstoppable when he is running with the ball, it's impossible to mark him, I always try to do my best the simplest possible way, I managed to stay calm on the pitch".

Neymar was involved in both Brazil goals, created other chances, and nearly scored a goal himself in the first half.

The winger was also regarded by Brazil's press as the national team's best player in the game, along with Chelsea midfielder Oscar. The good performance against Italy might help change the idea that Neymar is not ready to perform well in big Brazil games.
