Neymar: Brazil's Ronaldo leaps to his defense over acting claims

Grant SmithJul 06, 2018

"It would be easier for England to beat Brazil than to beat Sweden in my opinion, Sweden today are a very hard team to break down", Swede Eriksson, who led England to the 2002 and 2006 World Cup quarter-finals, told Paddy Power News.

He missed the rest of the tournament and could be forgiven for doing his utmost to prevent a similar fate this time.

In his pre-match media conference on Sunday, Thiago Silva referenced the stellar individual performances from his two Paris Saint-Germain team-mates and expressed his hope that a third would follow suit.

The world's most expensive player has been instrumental for Brazil, contributing 1.24 Expected Goal Involvement (xGI) per 90 to the team, and is averaging 0.81 xG per 90 in front of goal himself.

"When people would repeatedly hit me, I would feel a sense of unfairness".

"Criticism is nonsense. TV shows and newspaper just want to fill the space".

Belgium displayed their fighting spirit and manager Roberto Martinez was able to completely change the game after going down 2-0.

One tweeted, "If true, Neymar has spent more time on the floor at this World Cup (14 minutes) than Danny Welbeck has on the pitch (11 minutes)".

The Red Devils will have been buoyed by their 3-2 comeback victory against Japan in the last 16 and have more than enough firepower to hurt the Selecao, but Brazil will prey on Belgium's obvious defensive weaknesses. But, if anyone in the squad thinks they have an easy game on Saturday, they're wrong.

Striker Harry Kane, the English captain, who has made it clear he's more than willing to put this team on his back in this tournament, has a prolific six goals off just nine shots and now leads the World Cup's race for the Golden Boot, the award given to the player with the most goals over the course of the month.

There is also "WBS", which is presumably the initials of Chelsea player Willian Borges de Silva, and CasAo is likely Real Madrid player Casemiro, as Neymar tagged both players in the picture. "It does not bring him sympathy".
