Mexican Team Introduce 'Neymar Challenge' As Half Time Entertainment

Mexican Team Introduce 'Neymar Challenge' As Half Time Entertainment

World Cups and Neymar really do seem like they don't mix. Now the Brazilian has been given the ultimate embarrassment with one Mexican team adoption the 'Neymar challenge' to entertain the crowd at half time.

Four years ago Neymar was the poster boy for the World Cup in Brazil, with all the host nation's hopes pinned on the then Barcelona forward to take them to the final, and win it.

Of course history didn't exactly play out like that with the former Santos player injured in the team's quarter final win over Colombia, as their fellow South Americans went into full shithouse mode.

After that Brazil fell apart, losing the semi final to Germany 7-1 and then the third place play-off to Netherlands as well.

This time the now PSG man was once again expected to help Brazil win and had his injury before the tournament.

Once again things didn't play out as expected. Despite a better all round team the five times World Cup winners looked too reliant on Neymar who in turn tried to do too much and they went out to Belgium in the quarter final.

The worst thing for Neymar throughout the tournament though has been his diving and theatrics and that has got a lot of criticism and it's also turned into quite the joke in Mexico.
