Neymar Skills Peru, Ronaldo Scores A Hat-Trick, Rooney Puts England Ahead And Messi Scores Over The Weekend In This Soccer Roundup

So many goals and tricks!

This past weekend, the Copa America kicked off and the Euro 2016 Qualifiers resumed.

All of this soccer led to a number of amazing highlights. It seemed like almost every other minute there was another jaw dropping goal or ankle breaking move from one of soccer's heroes in Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr. and Wayne Rooney.

In case you didn't know, the Copa America is a national team tournament for countries in South America such as Brazil, Argentina and host country Chile. This year, Mexico was also invited to partake in the tournament

In Europe, teams such as England and Portugal continued on their path to qualify for the Euro 2016, which will take place in ten cities across France.

Let's kick off the highlights with Neymar's double rainbow over two poor Peru defenders.

What?! We're not really sure how that is possible, but then again, Neymar does a lot of things we haven't seen before. All in a days work.

Willian didn't want Neymar to get all the shine and added his own touch of magic to the game with a similar move.

Perhaps one of the best highlights from the game was Neymar's pass through 7 (Yes! SEVEN!!) Peru defenders for an assist.

Neymar also added a goal on a sublime header, if all of that wasn't enough already. Can you say phenom?

Across the pond on the other side of the world, Ronaldo's day got off to a funny start as two kids rushed the field for an autograph. Of course Ronaldo obliged.

But that was just the start of good things to come as Ronaldo put on a show, going off for a hat-trick against Armenia. His first goal came on a penalty shot, but these next two are all about hustle and skill.

On his second goal, Ronaldo chases down a runaway long ball, somehow beating his defender, with a kick behind his back! 

The goalie should have known that you don't let CR7 get in the box.

This last goal is all about Ronaldo's pure skill as a striker and the power punch he packs in that right foot of his. 

This shot has to be at least 30 yards out and Ronaldo makes the shot like nothing. He simply lines it up and boom.

The form is impeccable.

Catch the highlights below.

Elsewhere, Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere combined for their own set of heroics against Slovenia. Wilshere knocked in two goals from outside the box and Rooney added some late minute heroics to put England ahead for the win.

Although Argentina didn't win, there were a fair share of nice goals from Sergio Aguero and Messi, respectively. You can watch those highlights below.

It's hard to pick the absolute best performance, but let's hear it for our heroes on the pitch. Let the debate begin...
