BARCELONA, Spain – Neymar and Luis Suarez played for the first time since their dramatic World Cup exits, with the Brazilian star scoring twice Monday in Barcelona's 6-0 rout of Mexican champion Leon in a preseason tuneup.
The last time Suarez played he infamously bit an Italian opponent at the World Cup, drawing a four-month ban from competitive matches.
The Uruguayan striker has since transferred to Barcelona from Liverpool. He was cheered by his new fans at Camp Nou during the team's introduction. He entered as a substitute in the 75th minute to more applause.
Neymar hadn't played since fracturing a vertebra during the World Cup on July 4, ruling him out of the rest of the tournament. He was deemed fit to play hours before the game against Leon.
