Mexico Player Criticises Neymar's Diving Habits

Mexico will meet Brazil in the round of 16 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and one of El Tri’s stars has criticised superstar Neymar for his diving antics ahead of the tie.

Best World Cup Group Stage XI

Veteran Mexico player Andres Guardado and his team-mates will on Monday go head-to-head with Neymar and Brazil, who will go into the game on the back of a convincing 2-0 win over Serbia in the last-16.

Neymar has been accused of going to ground too easily since the start of the competition, and although Guardado feels the Brazilian sometimes throws himself to ground, he says that is for the referees to stop.

"We all know who Neymar is but it isn't up to me, or my team, to judge him but the referees and FIFA," he said, according to Sport.

"Now there's VAR they need to watch his style and know how to manage it.

"We know he likes to exaggerate fouls, throw himself on the ground a lot, but that's his style of play and the person who needs to stop that is the referee, not us."

Mexico’s highlight of the tournament so far has been their win over Germany in their first match, but attentions will now be fully on beating Brazil in the next round.

Do you think Neymar’s play acting is getting the best of him? Let us know in the comments section below.
