ICYMI, (or you just don’t care) the FIFA World Cup 2018 is currently underway in Russia, and with all the VAR drama some of the best teams in the world are making a right mess of things. After Brasil drew with Switzerland and recorded a late victory against Costa Rica, tongues have been wagging about the form of their star player – Neymar Jr.
If you’re an avid football fan (or watched Brasil’s game against Switzerland for 5 minutes) then you’ll have invariably noticed Neymar’s penchant for simulation play (aka diving) which, although it hasn’t led to a great performance, has led to some fire memes.

In fact, Neymar has fallen about so much, that a bar in Rio, Sir Walter Pub, is offering up free shots every time Neymar takes a tumble in Brasil’s last group match against Serbia. Considering it’s pretty much a do or die for both teams we’re sure it’s going to be a feisty encounter.
We’re not sure if this is a case of reverse psychology, but if Neymar plays anywhere close to the way he has done for the last couple of years, two things are certain: Sir Walter Pub may run out of alcohol (or get awfully close), and all its patrons are going to get absolutely hammered!
