This embarrassing Neymar dive will make you cringe

Fortunately for the game’s credibility, the referee took no action against the Granada player and Barca went on to lose the game

NEYMAR WON’T BE keen to re-watch tonight’s Granada-Barca game anytime soon — and not just for footballing reasons.

The Brazilian produced a rather embarrassing dive in what looked a clear attempt to get his opponent sent off in the first half of the match.

Yet fortunately for the game’s credibility, the referee took no action against the Granada player and Barca went on to lose.

Unfortunately, it is not the first time the player has resorted to diving, with former Brazil star Pele recently commenting: “I think Neymar looks to create fouls and situations that aren’t there.”
