Madrid daily AS don’t make their business writing good things about FC Barcelona or much related to the Catalan club. But yesterday, AS journalist Aritz Gabilondo detailed Gerard Deulofeu’s performance for the Spanish under 21 side against Bosnia&Herzegovina as “one of the greatest displays ever” (@youngcule) at that level of international play.
Deulofeu showed off silky skills, powerful running and accurate passing to contribute four assists and one goal (penalty) to Spain’s 6-1 victory. The Everton loanee also cracked the post twice. Follow the link to highlights of last night’s magic. #Deulofeushow

November 6, 2013 marks a mini-milestone for FC Barcelona. Today is the date 100 days since Neymar’s debut for the club.

He has since played 15 official matches for the club, scoring three official goals and assisting another seven for his teammates, while demonstrating a wonderful understanding with the world’s number one player, Leo Messi.
