Viewers were left somewhat surprised when Neymar broke down in tears at full-time following Brazil’s 2-0 World Cup win over Costa Rica on Friday.
The world’s most expensive player endured an up and down game at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.
Costa Rica frustrated Brazil for the majority of the game, and Neymar was left red-faced when he had a penalty decision overturned.
Despite the referee originally awarding Brazil a penalty, Bjorn Kuipers used VAR to rule that the Paris Saint-Germain man was indeed not fouled.
Luckily for the tournament favourites, Philippe Coutinho brilliantly poked home a goal in the 90th minute.
With Costa Rica pushing forward for an equaliser, Neymar finally got his first World Cup goal with virtually the last kick of the game and won all three points for Brazil.
When the referee blew the final whistle a few seconds later, Neymar dropped to his knees and began crying – but this left fans baffled.
One viewer tweeted: "Oh god, Neymar crying after a mere crucial last minute in a World Cup match is the MOST PATHETIC THING I have ever seen, I am utterly disgusted, absolutely no place in the game for it."
Another one posted: "Neymar, stop trying to get even more attention with your fake crying."
