Edinson Cavani Takes Out Neymar During International Friendly
Brazil vs. Uruguay was a bit spicy to say the least.
The five-time World Cup winners faced their South American counterparts Uruguay at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium in an international 'friendly' on Friday night.
But there was nothing friendly about the fixture.
Players from both sides were flying in tackles with EIGHT players being booked including Uruguay's Cavani, who clattered his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Neymar.
In the second-half, Neymar, the only scorer in the game, was in control of the ball on the byline until Cavani swiped him out.

Naturally, Neymar went down like a sack of sh*t, rolling around in agony.
Cavani, on the other hand, was livid with match referee Craig Pawson who brandished a yellow card.

I think it's pretty evident that Cavani and Neymar are NOT cool with one another, despite being teammates at PSG.- 730Gaucho:flag_uy: (@GauchoBalboa) November 17, 2018

is it hate or friendship?
Of course, Cavani and Neymar's relationship has come under intense scrutiny through their squabbles at club level.
The pair have clashed on numerous occasions since Neymar's world record transfer from Barcelona, most notably having a on-field spat over a penalty.
Should be an interesting reunion when they return to Paris.
