- Schmeichel wants FIFA to investigate Neymar’s actions against Mexico
In today’s latest FIFA World Cup news, former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has demanded FIFA to investigate into Neymar’s playacting and consistent playacting against Mexico. Schmeichel labelled Neymar’s frequent dives as “disgraceful” and was amazed at FIFA’s decision of giving Neymar the Man of the Match award against Mexico. In one of the several attempts from Neymar to delay the game, Neymar reacted to be in a great deal of pain when Mexico defender Miguel Layun accidentally stepped on Neymar’s ankle bringing out a great deal of anguish from Brazil’s superstar. Schmeichel went on to claim that at the time he thought Neymar was dying given the dramatic reaction from the forward.
Schmeichel wants FIFA action against Neymar
Peter Schmeichel was a guest on Russian TV outlet RT Sports where he did not hold back his words describing Neymar’s disgraceful acts against Mexico and demanded FIFA to intervene and probe into Neymar’s constant diving acts against Mexico. Schmeichel said: “First of all, congratulations to Brazil. It’s nice to have one of the big names through in the tournament, we’ve said goodbye to far too many already.
“[Neymar] looked like he was dying. I thought he’d be put on a stretcher and put in an ambulance and we’d never see him again. I’d strongly appeal to FIFA, this is not something we want to see in football… We’ve got VAR, we must get rid of this play-acting.”
