Neymar: The Mexicans talked a lot and went home
Belgium’s golden generation knock out Brazil
Mexico’s last-16 defeat at the hands of Brazil was a bad tempered affair to say the least, leaving such a mark on Andres Guardado that the midfielder has hit back at Neymar.
After the South Americans’ 2-0 win, the Paris Saint-Germain star said their opponents ‘talked a lot, too much, and went home’.
Indeed, before the game Guardado had described his opponent as someone who ‘exaggerates’ fouls with that theory compounded by Neymar’s actions in the knockout rounds.
But it was the Mexican who had the last laugh, posting an Instagram story that simply read ‘And now who is going home?’ following Brazil’s exit on Saturday night.
