DeAndre Yedlin had a major dig at Neymar during Brazil’s friendly win over the USA.
The PSG forward won a cheap free-kick off Yedlin and the Newcastle United defender was clearly unimpressed with the way Neymar went to ground.

With Mexican referee Fernando Guerrero telling Yedlin off for the foul, the defender says: “Did you watch the World Cup?”
The exchange was picked up by TV cameras with Yedlin clearly seen saying the words.
His reference is to Neymar’s consistent rolling around during the tournament in Russia.
The world record signing was criticised by fans, pundits and football legends for his antics.
His diving even sparked the ‘Neymar Challenge’ on social media – with thousands of people rolling around at work or in public to hilariously mock the £198m star.
It was also revealed that Neymar had spent a massive 14 minutes on the floor during the World Cup.
Dutch legend Marco van Basten said at the time: “It’s nice if you have humour and he makes people laugh, as we have seen by all those things on social media!
“But for me, what I have seen from him is not a good attitude.
“As a player, you have to try to do your best and if you act too much it will not help you.
“He should understand his situation, personally.”
England icon Alan Shearer added: “It’s absolutely pathetic.
“There’s no doubting the ability of him, but it really is pathetic when he’s rolling around in agony, why does he feel the need to do that?
“It’s been a terrific World Cup, but the one downside is players feigning injury and the diving, it’s a big issue.”
Neymar scored the second goal of a 2-0 win, converting a penalty just before half-time, after Roberto Firmino had opened the scoring after 10 minutes.
