Neymar put in a stellar performance in Brazil's 2-0 win over Mexico on Monday , but his attacking contributions were far from the only talking point after the last-16 encounter.
Already under fire for some of his exaggerated reactions to contact at the World Cup , Neymar was again slated for his reaction to a stamp by Miguel Layun in the second half.
The Mexico defender did seem to know what he was doing when he stood on the Brazilian's ankle on the sideline, but Neymar's agonized rolling around suggested a significant injury.
Instead, the PSG man was able to continue and added an assist to his earlier goal to help send Brazil to the quarter-final.
Naturally, there was plenty of online reaction to Neymar's play-acting.
