In late June 2016, he was subsequently one of the three over-23 players to be included in Brazil’s squad for the 2016 Summer Olympics on home soil, and was named the team’s captain by the Olympic side’s manager Rogerio Micale.
In Brazil’s quarter-final clash with Colombia on 13 August, Neymar scored Brazil’s first goal of the match, from a direct free kick, and also set up his nation’s second goal in an eventual 2–0 win. In Brazil’s semi-final clash with Honduras on 18 August, Neymar scored twice, Brazil’s first and last goals of the match, in an eventual 6–0 win
