The Neymar Challenge Has Fans Around The World Dramatically Falling Down

The Neymar Challenge Has Fans Around The World Dramatically Falling Down

One took to Twitter to say: "Sad and annoyed, no tears from me but this hurts".

Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado taunted Neymar after Brazil's elimination from the World Cup, in retaliation for the Paris Saint-Germain star's comments about his team earlier in the tournament.

That respect was evident in the Spaniard's every utterance on Thursday but, while acknowledging the dangers presented by Brazil forward Neymar, Martinez was confident the skills of the likes of Eden Hazard would also be influential for Belgium. "With his understanding of his importance in his group and the way we want to play, he's essential for us". Football's full of it - there are even YouTube compilations dedicated to the World Cup's Best Ever Flopping.

"Very happy to be part of this team, I am proud of all, interrupted our dream but they did not get out of our head and neither of our hearts". We have four players who can make the difference. Three of the four are really experienced defenders so you have to know how to attack.

Neymar, who only just recovered from a metatarsal injury in time to play in Russian Federation, spoke of his pride in his team-mates, who failed to emulate Brazil's achievement of reaching the semi-finals in 2014.

Lukaku has brought his United form with him to Russian Federation, scoring four goals in as many games so far and adding a further assist.

"But I think Rom is a player we know well because as a young man we saw his outstanding talent".

"If we show the same mentality as we did on Monday, we have a big chance". "[But] I think offensively that we are really strong". If you look, you see how much he's been participating collectively, taking up the ball, taking up space.

The core of that side remains in place in Russian Federation, where Belgium has won all four of its matches, including coming back from 2-0 down to beat Japan in the round of 16 with a thrilling counterattack in the final seconds of injury time.
