LONDON (AP) Neymar replaced Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi atop the Associated Press Global Football 10 on Tuesday after propelling their side to a 6-0 win over Elche in the Spanish league.

Neymar and Messi scored twice, but Neymar won a penalty for Messi to convert and provided the assist for the sixth goal, scored by Pedro.

"Barcelona kept the pressure on Real Madrid with a phenomenal six-goal win away from home," Marco Monteverde of News Corp. Australia said, before praising Neymar's performance. "The little Brazilian was lethal in his side's demolition of Elche, sharing the spotlight with Lionel Messi."
