WATCH: A-League players battle it out ahead of Neymar 5-a-side series

Neymar Jr's five-a-side series is back in 2017 after a successful 2016.

The Australian edition of the world's largest 5-on-5 football tournament - Neymar Jr's Five - kicks off on April 1 with 3,500 street footballers set to do battle around the country.

The winning team from each of the 38 remote and urban locations will progress to their respective State Finals, with the tournament set to conclude at the National Final in Melbourne on June 10, which coincides with the Brazil v Argentina international friendly.

The Australian National Champions will then travel to Neymar's hometown in Brazil to compete against teams from 53 other nations for the global title, with the winning team to fly to Barcelona to watch a game at the Nou Camp, and of course to meet Neymar himself.

With the Aussie games set to get underway soon, major sponsor Red Bull put together a video showing three of the Hyundai A-League's most promising youngsters do battle in the ultimate game of G.O.A.L.

Watch Brisbane Roar pair Corey Brown, Joe Caletti, and Newcastle Jets midfielder Devante Clut in action here.
