Watch: The best social media memes as fans troll Neymar roll

Neymar has faced criticism for his theatrics during Brazil's World Cup 2018 campaign, but fellow countryman Ronaldo believes the Paris Saint-Germain forward is not getting enough protection from referees.

Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio has slammed Neymar's theatrics during their 2-0 defeat to Brazil on Monday, where the Seleção's poster boy once again hit the headlines for his playacting.

2018 will not be the year that we finally see Lionel Messi lift the World Cup, but in truth, ever since Argentina lost the 2014 final, the prospect of the Barcelona star getting his hands on football's biggest prize was looking pretty unlikely.

"He is an intelligent player in his movement and on how to defend himself from being tackled".

"Neymar uses his mobility very intelligently and it would be necessary to protect him, because he has great talent". Brazil's Neymar in action.

Finally, the 2002 World Cup victor talked about Cristiano Ronaldo's future.

But the great news for fight fans is that the fight's still there, the contract is still there on the desk, all they've got to do is sign it.

The World Cup lost its headline acts on Saturday as the game's two biggest stars, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, readied to leave Russian Federation after their teams were eliminated in the Round of 16.

"What they are saying about the theatrical and pathetic performance of English players yesterday?"

Landau's comment came after Colombian coach Jose Pekerman accused the England players of going down too easily in search of fouls.

"People are focusing on Neymar, but if it was only Neymar, I'd be happy, but it's not only Neymar", Mourinho said on Russia Today after England's win.

"I haven't got any problem if you want to send messages to my account, even ones in which you threaten me, I understand that this is all part of the game".
