Brazil was beaten by a better and sharper Belgium yesterday. They lost 2-1 to the Red Devils. The five time World Champions looked pretty shabby yesterday when they failed to capitalize on many chances and on the other hand, Belgium capitalized and bottled the Brazil side.
Roberto Martinez’s men now face 1998 winners, France in the semis for a place in the Final.
But even after all this, there was one person from the Brazil side who stole the spotlight. Who other than Neymar, who rolled and dived his way to the World Cup Quarters and showed some goals and attacking flairs in between.

Twitterati is known for their cruel way (sarcasm intended) of dealing with a player’s misery and it didn’t stop in Neymar’s case as well.
Here are some of the best ones:-

In 2014 Brazil tried to use the emotion of Neymar’s injury to beat Germany (lost 7-1). In 2018 it was all about his rushed comeback from injury and getting the ball to him. A great country blinded by a brand.
