Neymar should have at least been booked for his dive think he's a bit of a baby I wouldn't even have him in my team don't know why everything's about him a spoilt brat
Brazil 2018 with the exception of one or two players must be the Worst Ever. Every time i see Neymars antics I cringe that little bit more. Are these Idiots who dive and cheat not aware of the intense scrutiny they are under? Neymar is ruining the Culture of a once Great Footballing Nation.Shame. Come on England.
402. "Ruining the game". Maybe in the short term but teams would soon wise up and change their tactics. This is what fans want so Fifa should use the chance at the WC to introduce it globally but they are so scared of ruining the competition that they are not allowing the refs to exercise this plan. Maybe when it gets to club leagues...?
Credit to the referee on this game but really what chance have they got? If they let the diving go, they aren’t strong enough but if they actually applied the rules and sent the cheats off, they would be ‘ruining the game’!
"There were not many standout performers for Brazil, but having scored the opening goal and managed four efforts on target, the nod goes to the former Liverpool man"No...the nod goes to the Barcelona man. I'm a Liverpool fan and this referencing old teams is annoying. You do it with Suarez too, but for some reason don't do it with Sterling.
Neymar represents all that is wrong with modern footballers. He is disrespectful to everyone on the field of play including his teammates and the officials. He is petulant, pompous and arrogant. The 'penalty' feign warranted a red card for simulation and his fake tears at the end confirm him for the embarrassment he is. I have always admired Brazil the way they play the game but not Naymar.
Nobody proof reading at the BBC anymore“spent more yet time with his face in the turf”.
Philippe Coutinho the stand-out star of this Brazil team. Neymar, despite his undoubted abilities, is a media construct.
Brazil dominated this game per the stats. Often teams will defend in numbers when less skill. Serbia will need to try and win. This may allow some more room for Brazil.Football has moved on since 1994 and 2002. Brazil are the only nation to have qualified for every world cup. They have won it more than any other country. That's alot to live up to
Brazil are just disappointing . If you're favourites for the World Cup you shouldn't find it quite so difficult to beat Costa Rica. Must be difficult to get a good team performance from a side that play scattered all over the globe though. Is there really a distinctive Brazil soccer culture any more?
Aside from Neymars personality and antics.Brazil always offer some brilliance in the game, they still are the team that can produce that bit of Magic.Every team at the moment looks beatable. IfBrazil do click I think they look the most capable to win.
Any chance of STOPPING so far sickening sycophantic commentary by BBC & ITV journos covering the Brazil games!?I swear when Neymar gets the ball there are times they sound like they're close to orgasm!Neymar has been average compared to many players at the WC- his only goal when Iceland were exhausted into 90+ mins.Brazil haven't even been average; they've been RUBBISH 75mins of each game!
389. Posted by HarryMorgan on53 minutes agoDid nobody see Neymar swearing at the Serbia players and screaming at the ref 'don't touch'? That's what gets me, his complete lack of respect for the others on the field. Where does that come from? Got to say I never saw Naymar swearing at the Serbian players, then again whey would he when Serbia weren't even in Brazil's group :D
Just can't see Brazil winning this World Cup judged on what they've shown so far.
I don't think it's their eyesight that needs examining. These refs all have perfect eyesight. It’s their brains (& impartiality & (Swiss!) bank accounts & betting activities) that need examining.
