For those who have been religiously following the 2018 World Cup, you’d know that the Mexican team was eliminated by Brazil on 2 July.
Through the intense match, it was probably Brazilian star Neymar who stole the show. His impressive fake outs might just win him an Oscar.
During play, Mexican footballer Miguel Layun had stepped on Neymar’s ankle while trying to gain possession of the ball. The Brazilian’s priceless reaction turned out to be as good as his soccer skills, and has sparked comical memes from soccer fans around the world.

One Twitter user commented, “Y’all already know to catch Neymar at the academy awards for best actor of our century.”
Neymar recovered from his “injury” and was seen sprinting about 15 minutes later to help Brazil score its second goal in the game.
While Neymar’s performance was amusing, the memes created by soccer fans have proved even better. Take a look at some of the most hilarious entries below.
