Thiago Neves Augusto, commonly known as Thiago Neves (born 27 February 1985 in Curitiba), is a Brazilian footballer[1] who currently plays for Al Jazira.

Club career

He scored a hat-trick in the home leg of the Copa Libertadores final – Thiago Neves had by then already scored once in the away leg (in Ecuador) — (during the 2008 Copa Libertadores) but ending up on the losing side, as Fluminense drew 5–5 on aggregate with LDU de Quito and were eventually downed in the penalty shootout. Neves was one of the players who missed a penalty.

On 30 August 2008, it was announced that Thiago Neves joined Hamburger SV player and was seen as the ideal replacement for the outgoing Rafael van der Vaart. Fluminense received 30% of the profit of R$ 3,502 thousand and rest of them belonged to a third party owner, "D.I.S Esporte e Organização de Eventos LTDA".[2]

He left the club on 31 January 2009 and joined Al-Hilal for €7 million.[citation needed] Neves scored a hat-trick against the rival team Al-Ittihad which shaped their historic 5–0 victory. In 2012 he signed for Fluminense for the exact fee he was sold and at the end of that season he was crowd champion in Brazil for his new club. On July 2013 he was sold back to Al-Hilal for €6 million.

International career

He made his international debut in a friendly match against Sweden on 26 March 2008. Later that year, he was called up to be part of the Brazil U-23 team for the 2008 Summer Olympics. He scored two goals in the second match of the group stage over New Zealand national under-23 football team in a 3–0 win. Brazil finished third.
