Neymar: Booing is getting boring

Following the Selecao's draw with Chile, the star forward has stressed that supporter criticism does not get to him as he feels being booed is part of the game.

Brazil international Neymar says he is growing bored of supporters jeering his performances in the wake of the Selecao's 2-2 friendly draw against Chile on Wednesday.

The Santos star was booed throughout by fans, despite scoring once and creating Brazil's other goal, but he has made it clear that he has become accustomed used to the public's critical approach.

"Obviously no one likes to be jeered and booed. I don't care about it any more, though. I get booed each game with the national team. It's getting boring," Neymar told Reuters. "We always give our utmost for the team. All our opponents try do something extra when they meet Brazil. It's up to us do even better.

"We have to get used to being jeered. That's football. One day you're booed and the next day people praise you. That's the way it is."

Brazil's next match is the Confederations Cup match against Japan on June 15.
