Neymar accused of diving again

Only yesterday we asked - Does Neymar dive? And, judging by the comments, it seems the general consensus was yes.

And last night the Brazilian boy wonder was at it again - throwing himself to the floor in an attempt to win a free-kick.

He got the decision here, but his theatrics attracted more than a little criticism on social media.

From 'ridiculous' to 'spectacular' to 'sensational', Neymar's acrobatics had everyone talking after he'd helped his country through to the Confederations Cup final with a 2-1 win over Uruguay.

And the new Barcelona signing showed what a force for good he can be - setting up Fred for the first goal with a delightful piece of chest control.

He's been exceptional throughout the tournament so far, and we certainly can't wait to watch him in action next season.

But we wish he'd caught out the amateur dramatics - because it doesn't look good.

Check out the video of Neymar throwing himself to the floor...
