Hilarious Video Of Neymar Flicking Giant Bug Off Dani Alves' Head Goes Viral
Neymar made a scoring return to the Brazilian national team in the 2-2 draw with Colombia in Miami on Saturday and also took time out to save Dani Alves from a giant insect prior to the game.
While the two were out training on the pitch, a huge bug that looked similar to the one that memorably made a beeline for James Rodriguez in the 2014 World Cup, was on Alves' head.
The Sao Paulo right-back was completely oblivious to it but his compatriot became aware - having a priceless look on his face as he frantically flicked the insect away to help out his pal.
Playing in his first game of the season, Neymar bagged the equaliser for the Selecao against their fellow South American outfit in the second half.
He was also on the receiving end of a pretty nasty shove into the advertising boards from Davinson Sanchez.
But Alves, understandably, was happy to see the return of the 27-year old.
"It's always a joy to have Ney doing what he knows best, enjoying himself and doing his best for the national team," Alves told Globo Esporte via Sporting News after the game.
"We have affection for him and when he is focused his level is very high. Let's let him do what he can do, which is to play football. We're here to help him."
