Watch soccer star Neymar Jr. attempt a rooftop shot for Jimmy Kimmel

He shoots across Hollywood Boulevard and scores

Posted on

Jimmy Kimmel brought one of the most talented soccer players in the world to the roof of his studio on Wednesday to attempt a shot across Hollywood Boulevard.

Neymar Jr., a gold-medal winner and star player for both Barcelona and the Brazillian national team, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live with one goal in mind: to score a goal across the busy street outside Kimmel’s studio.

Asked by Kimmel before attempting the shot if he was able to score, Neymar answered, “I can.” Ever a man of his word, Neymar did score, much to the delight of Kimmel and his studio audience.

Watch the first-ever goal scored across Hollywood Boulevard above.
