Bar In Rio Will Give Out Free Drinks Whenever Neymar Falls Against Serbia

If you've tuned in for any of Brazil's World Cup games, you'll be aware that they haven't really got going thus far, and their main man, Neymar, has been well below par.

The PSG star returned to full fitness just in time for the showpiece and got off the mark in the tournament in stoppage time to seal a 2-0 win over Costa Rica.

But the 25-year old hasn't been able to reach his usual extraordinarily high levels thus far, spending most of the games on his backside.

He's been doing so much falling over, in fact, that a bar in Rio de Janeiro have promised to give out free drinks to customers every time Neymar falls to the ground against Serbia in Wednesday's Group E clash.

The pub have also produced this hilarious poster on Instagram - and something tells us that they may well be giving out a lot of free pints because as we know, Neymar, as good as he is, loves a bit of simulation.

After five-time winners Brazil picked up their first win of the tournament on Friday, Neymar was in floods of tears at the final whistle - the goal and victory meaning so much to him.
