Neymar Throws 19-Year-Old Right-Back To The Floor After Being Nutmegged In Training

Neymar Throws 19-Year-Old Right-Back To The Floor After Being Nutmegged In Training

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Brazil's 'new kid' on the block, 19-year-old Weverton Guilherme; a confident right-back who made a real impression in a recent training session.

Weverton, who plays for Cruziero's academy team, went up against the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Casemiro earlier, and didn't look out of place.

In fact, when he went one-on-one with former captain Neymar, the youngster pulled off a slick nutmeg.

Neymar clearly wasn't impressed with his skills and proceeded to pull his shirt, flooring the defender in the meantime.

As you can see in the footage above, Neymar walks away as Weverton lay on the floor after being pulled down.

The 27-year-old was stripped of the Brazil captaincy earlier this week after recent disciplinary issues.

It was soon announced that Dani Alves will captain his side at the Copa America, as revealed in a recent statement by the CBF.

"Daniel Alves will be captain of the Brazilian national team in the friendly matches against Qatar and Honduras and in Copa America Brazil 2019." it read.

In other Copa America news, Everton winger Richarlison found out he made Brazil's squad, surrounded by family members at his grandparents' house.

Richarlison has his legs crossed and eyes glued to the TV as footage captured the moment on camera.

This is brilliant.

Thoughts on Neymar being stripped of the captaincy? What about his reaction to the nutmeg?
