Neymar Takes A Tumble During World Cup Match & The Internet ‘Rolled’ Him Into A Meme

The World Cup Round 16 games are over and the contestants for the next round have been finalised. Brazil has reached this stage by beating Mexico 2-0, thereby making a resounding comeback after their initial struggle. But, according to most fans, their victory was marred by Neymar Jr.’s over-the-top antics.

Neymar played an important part by scoring a goal and setting up another. But, as per official reports, he spent a whopping 14 minutes on the ground, convincing referees that he was injured. And that irked a lot of fans as they felt he should focus on his soccer skills rather than his acting chops. However, some Swiss kids went a notch further.

In a video that’s going viral, a bunch of Swiss kids can be seen practicing soccer, only to turn into Neymar in a matter of seconds.

During Brazil’s face-off with Serbia, Neymar managed to roll approximately six to seven feet after being tackled. While playing against Mexico his usual theatrics were on full display as well. However, he went completely overboard when a Mexican player accidentally stepped on his ankle.

So, a group of budding junior footballers from Switzerland made a video mocking Neymar. They rushed forward with the ball and fell to the ground as if an imaginary force had knocked them to the ground. And to add insult to injury, they refused to get up until we were convinced that they were indeed hurt, just like Neymar.

You can watch the hilarious video here:

While this is certainly the most hilarious example, there are several others who’ve taken Neymar to task. Here are the best ones:

1. I can totally see this happening in real life.

2. Well, at least someone’s feeling inspired.

3. Plot-twist of the century.

4. At least it fooled the cat. Neymar’s fooling no one.

5. Rolling like that can be injurious to everyone’s health.

6. That’s finger-licking funny!

7. Words of wisdom from the legend himself.

8. At least that looks cute.

9. Multiply that by 10 and that’s what he does throughout the match

10. That’s totally possible.

11. Nice to meet you all.

12. All of Bollywood would’ve retired.

Neymar is an extremely skilled player and has all the potential to be one of the bests. And with just a few more matches left, he can take Brazil to World Cup glory. So, maybe it’s time to keep the tumbling at bay.
