Neymar angered by rough treatment from Chile

 

The forward was the victim of several strong tackles on Sunday but one of the alleged offenders says the 23-year-old was guilty of "theatre."
Neymar accused Chile of employing "UFC" tactics after he was on the end of some rough treatment during Brazil's 1-0 friendly victory at the Emirates Stadium. Roberto Firmino's 72nd minute strike was enough for the Seleção to extend its winning streak to eight matches, but the major talking point was Gary Medel's stamp on Neymar. The Inter midfielder appeared to tread on the Barcelona star during a first half altercation, but escaped without caution, much to Neymar's dismay. Neymar told: "This wasn't a game of football. It's meant to be football not UFC. The referee is there to stop these things from happening, but there were four referees and none of them saw anything! It seems we have to suffer. I am a sufferer!"
