Neymar tried a Georgie Best last night ... and got booked for it

Top marks for effort.

TIME WAS RUNNING out for Barcelona last night when Neymar took matters into his own hands.

Luis Enrique’s understrength side trailed Real Sociedad 1-0 from the second minute when Jordi Alba turned the ball into his own net.

Lionel Messi and Neymar both came off the bench for the second half and in the dying moments, the latter tried to force an equaliser with a cheeky effort straight out of the Georgie Best back catalogue.

It didn’t work when Georgie tried it on Gordon Banks all those years ago, and it didn’t work for Neymar. He was booked for his troubles and David Moyes scored a memorable win in La Liga.
