KFC's World Cup Ad Mocking All The Diving Is Superbly Done

Soccer Great Neymar Under Fire for 'Faking Injuries'

Opposition midfielder Miguel Layun stepped on Neymar's ankle, causing the Paris Saint-Germain star to roll around on the floor near the two dugouts.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio made a reference to "too much acting" and former internationals Alan Shearer, Pat Nevin, Peter Schmeichel and Eric Cantona were among those who criticised Neymar's theatrics during the first four games of the tournament.

Neymar must help Brazil lift the trophy next week if he wants to join the greats, according to the World Cup victor who first took home FIFA's top individual award.

Neymar has now been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 19 appearances for Brazil, featuring 11 goals and nine assists.

"I think that in all competitions, Brazil is the favourite". But not before trying a stamp on Layun himself. Neymar scored one goal and created another as his increasingly impressive Brazil side overpowered the Mexicans 2-0 in sweltering conditions.

If he continues at this rate, the 26-year old will easily surpass the legendary Brazilian Pele'e 77-goal record in the yellow jersey by the next two years. "I just hope it's his football skills we're talking about after the quarter-finals, not his amateur dramatics".

Najib's wife, Rosmah, and his stepson, Riza Aziz, have also been quizzed by anti-graft investigators in relation to 1MDB. It is also being investigated in six countries for alleged money laundering.

Neymar has had an unspectacular World Cup so far, although by no means unproductive.

This is supposed to be Belgium's golden generation, and perhaps for the first time we are beginning to see why.

Ronaldo, a three-time victor of FIFA's best player award, and Matthaeus spoke at a briefing about the individual accolade that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have won five times each in the past decade.

Former England defender Rio Ferdinand said Belgium will now take momentum into their last-eight tie with five-time world champions Brazil.

"We will have a real clarity of how to play against players like Neymar and Philippe Coutinho, that can change the game in a second".

Japan as the last remaining Asian team in the tournament opened the score sheets early in the forty eighth minute through Genki Haraguchi, and scored again the fifty second minute through Takashi Inui.
