Here’s What People Think Of Neymar’s #BRAMEX Injury

Neymar is, without a doubt, one of the best football players in the World Cup.

On July 2nd 2018, Brazil knocked Mexico out of the 2018 World Cup with their 2-0 win in Russia. However, Twitter was not flooded with the tweets of the win but instead with Neymar’s rather spectacular (read: dramatic) theatrics.

During the second half of the game, Neymar took a tumble down and Mexico’s Miguel Layun stood on Neymar’s ankle while trying to reach for the ball.

While we may know to a certain extent what his injury was, the world seems to think that Neymar was pulling everyone’s leg. Some would say, it was worthy of an Oscar (move aside, Cristiano Ronaldo).

Netizens were absolutely brutal when it came to Neymar’s “fake” injury and took to Twitter to vent out their frustrations and of course, post up a meme or two.

And we can’t decide which one we like more:

And who can forget about Eric Cantona, who first came out to take a jab at Neymar’s hair, now is now taking hits at Neymar’s theatrics:

But we’ve got the die hard fans who jumped to the Brazilian’s defense:

Neymar went on to defend himself saying:

I think it’s more an attempt to undermine me than anything else. I don’t much care for criticism, not even for praise because this can influence in a way the athlete’s attitude. In the last two matches I didn’t talk to the press because there are too many people talking, getting excited. I don’t know if they’re showing off. I am here to win with my teammates.

Let’s see what more theatrics Neymar has to offer when Brazil goes against Belgium this Saturday, July 7 2018 at 2am.
