As talented as he is, Neymar is often criticised for his diving/play-acting antics. His infamous “roll” at the World Cup recently went viral, with many talking about his petulant behaviour. Have you seen some of the memes of it on social media?
Neymar is considered to be one of the most fouled players in Europe at the moment, with teams fixated on giving the Brazilian as little room to cause damage as possible.
The Paris Saint-German attacker was heavily slated for his behaviour when the five-time World Cup champions took on Mexico in the round of 16 on Monday.
One incident saw Neymar go down just outside his team’s technical area with the ball between his feet. One of the Mexican players proceeded to take the ball from him, stepping on his ankle with the tip of his boot.
Neymar was then seen screaming and clutching his ankle as if he was in agonising pain, despite the player visibly applying very little pressure to his ankle.
Subsequently, the former FC Barcelona man became the talk of social media as the football world let rip at him.
Here are some of the funniest Neymar memes making the rounds:
