What DeAndre Yedlin Said To The Referee After Fouling Neymar Instantly Goes Viral
It only took a few - six to be exact - words but DeAndre Yedlin has gone viral following his brilliant conversation with the match referee.
Brazil traveled to the States for an international friendly with U.S.A.
Tite named a strong starting XI including the likes of Neymar, Philippe Coutinho not to mention Premier League stars like Alisson and Richarlison.
The Americans, themselves, also boasted an English top flight player in the shape of Newcastle United's DeAndre Yedlin.
And it was his actions which got everyone talking following the fixture.
Yedlin tackles Neymar with the referee blowing for a foul. He then approaches the speedy full-back.
Yedlin then hollers back; "Did you watch the World Cup?!" Insinuating the Paris Saint-Germain starlet dived just like he did during the summer in Russia.
