Both great goals from the Confederations Cup

Neymar's goal:

Neymar's goal positives:
- Volley
- Placement
- Shot quality (power)

Pirlo's goal positives:
- Dead ball
- Distance
- Placement
- Shot quality (curled and dropped)

I think Pirlo's goal is more impressive for the following reasons:

Dead balls from that far out are harder to hit than a well-given volley. Pirlo curled and dropped the ball in over 8 defenders - Neymar had nobody in front of him. Pirlo's shot was closer to the cross bar, from farther out. Pirlo's shot was better struck (curled and dropped vs a slight backspin).

What do you think?
