Neymar’s playing style has its fans and its critics, but everyone knows that it’s just for show. Nevertheless, some of his opponents don’t like his antics on the pitch, and usually tend to hurt the wingman when they feel he’s gone too far.
The first half of the game saw Neymar going at it with his opponents, even throwing a ball to one of their faces. But in the second half, midfielder Yasmani Duk took “justice” into his own hands by throwing an elbow to the Brazilian’s face. Neymar immediately fell to the ground, and when he got up, his shirt was covered in blood due to the Bolivian’s defending style.
Have a look.
Neymar scored one goal and handed out two assists en route to lead Brazil to a third consecutive win in the World Cup Qualifiers. Brazil hasn’t lost a single match with coach Tite, and Neymar managed to reach the fourth spot in Brazil’s all-time scoring list. Only Pelé, Ronaldo and Romario have more goals than Barcelona’s wingman.
