Not all tackles have been bad but Neymar has made a meal of quite a few of them with social media rife with memes of him rolling down mountains, hills and all sorts of landscapes.

"Football is interpreted in many different ways and there are many opinions".

He described criticism of Neymar as "nonsense", adding that the world's most expensive player does not get enough protection from referees. Neymar and Firmino should terrorize a poor Belgian defense, but I'm still not sold Brazil will survive the weight of expectations as long as Belgium can match them score for score and at least force extra time.

Bearing in mind that this tournament has featured the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Luis Suarez and Diego Godin, to be considered the least likeable player is quite something, but Neymar has really surpassed himself in Russian Federation.

"Clearly (Layun) steps on his ankle, but we all know it wasn't that bad". Players go down at the slightest touch in search of a free kick or exaggerate a foul to have an opponent punished.

"The results for Neymar with the national team are incredible and he's still not at his best", Ronaldo said.

Even though both iconic football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have bowed out of World Cup 2018, the debate over their greatness has resulted in a odd divorce case of a Russian couple. Wrote another, "I'm sure he can triple that amount in the remaining games".

"Neymar does not need it".

While the Kazan murals have been popular with picture-snapping fans, one in Moscow proved more controversial when it emerged that the man tasked with decorating the city for the World Cup had commissioned a 12-storey portrait of his wife. "It does not bring him sympathy".
