Nutmeg to such a world class player? But he shouldn’t have done that! Just a glimpse of the feelings of fans outside there.
All these were directed to one of the best players in the world Neymar Junior. Just to correct you please, the 27-year-old was nutmegged by a 19-year-old not the other way round.
Neymar has been hitting the headlines of late and not for a good reason. The Brazilian has had a poor spell this season and especially at Paris Saint-Germain where he is currently the most expensive player.
Before he went to PSG..
Neymar was twice named the South American Footballer of the Year, in 2011 and 2012, and soon relocated to Europe to join Barcelona. As part of Barça’s attacking trio with Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, he won the continental treble of La Liga, the Copa del Rey, and the UEFA Champions League, and came third for the FIFA Ballon d’Or in 2015 for his performances.
However, he has been out of the field for a better part of the season 2018-19 and worse than all, he has tainted his reputation by the recent occurrences.
He was slapped with a three-match ban after punching a fan after PSG defeat to Rennes in the French Cup Final, a ban that many wanted to be extended to Copa America tournament.

Interestingly, during their training for the coming Copa America tournament, Neymar was nutmegged by 19-year-old Weverton.
The Brazilian youngster, who plays for Cruzeiro, has been training with his national side in order to gain experience.
And he’s already making headlines after pulling off a brilliant nutmeg at the expense of Neymar.
In a bid to regain his face, Neymar dragged the youngster and walked away.
Imagine o diálogo:
– E aí, meu filho, como foi o treino com a Seleção? Fez gol?
– Não, mas dei uma caneta no Neymar…

But fans would not let it go before they stormed social media to show scorn, sympathy, and advice to the sensational PSG star.
Neymar really is a massive cock https://t.co/TcIu5vKkgr

However, Neymar left the training injured and there are doubts whether he will play the Copa America tournament.
