‘Neymar Still Brazil’s Main Man’

Real Madrid forward Rodrygo has defended his international teammate Neymar, maintaining the Al Hilal star is still Brazil’s “main player.”

Neymar was hit by a bag of popcorn thrown from the stands by supporters after Thursday’s 1-1 home draw with Venezuela, an incident that Brazil coach Fernando Diniz condemned.

Brazil fans were frustrated with the result and Neymar — the country’s talisman for so long — bore the brunt of that criticism.
