Neymar not bothered by British boos
Neymar has brushed aside the boos he received from the spectators at St James' Park during Brazil's Olympic quarter-final victory over Honduras.
The Seleção worked hard to emerge 3-2 winners in an ill-tempered match that saw their Central American opponents pick up eight yellow cards and two red cards in Newcastle.
Wilmer Cristiano's tackle on Neymar in the first-half earned him a second yellow card and following the defender's dismissal, the crowd began to jeer the Santos forward.
However, Neymar insists that he is unfazed by the adversity. The 20-year-old told Marca Brasil:
''I'm always prepared for anything. To be cheered or to be booed is entirely normal.
''The only time I fell was when the Honduras player fouled me and got sent off. I will not let the criticism affect me, and just want to help Brazil more.
''Football remains no different to me, regardless of whether I play amid cheering or jeering.''
