The Amount Of Time Neymar Has Been On The Floor At This World Cup Is Unbelievable

The Amount Of Time Neymar Has Been On The Floor At This World Cup Is Unbelievable

We need to talk about Neymar. Unlike Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - though the pair do have their doubters - he doesn't quite have that likeability that those two resonate; he's without that certain personality that can win over the millions.

If he were to take Brazil to the final and win the tournament, they only people happy will be Brazil supporters. That seem like an obvious statement but the real suggestion is that Neymar is so disliked by everyone, the rest of the world will surely be supporting the team facing Brazil, should they make the final on July 15th.

But just why is there so much disdain for the Paris Saint Germain attacker? It might have something to do with his world record-breaking transfer last summer, from Barcelona to PSG to earn trophies, before being linked, this year, with a move to Real Madrid after only a year at the club - or it might just be his antics on the pitch.

A clearly talented footballer, Neymar likes to make the most of challenges and has been seen a number of times at this competition in Russia rolling around on the floor, after only being slightly touched by the opposition.

In fact, a report by RTS suggests that, while play has ensued with Brazil at the World Cup, Neymar has spent an overall period of 14 minutes on the floor.

Obviously this shocking stat goes with the general consensus of the Brazil international on social media. Here's a collection of some of the best tweets about the global superstar.
