Brazil fan customises his Neymar jersey to show appreciation for Marta

With a couple of games played and precisely zero goals scored or conceded, the men's Brazilian national side have most definitely struggled to click into gear at the Rio Olympics so far.

Even with the inclusion of star man Neymar, Brazil have failed to impress by grinding out mediocre goalless draws in both of their opening games against South Africa and Iraq respectively, with many home supporters booing the efforts on show.

In stark contrast, the Brazilian women's side have been comfortably dispatching all who have had the misfortune to come before them, racking up large and convincing wins over China and Sweden to date.

As the caption above states, a picture truly is worth one thousand words. Marta, universally considered to be the best female player in the world, has once again come to the fore, scoring for fun and quickly usurping Neymar as the Brazilian footballing hero of choice at Rio 2016.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
