Neymar hits back at critics claiming he dived during PSG’s friendly vs. Gamba Osaka

Paris Saint-Germain made it four wins in four preseason matches during its friendly fixture against J1 League side Gamba Osaka on Monday. PSG secured a 6-2 win in the contest, as Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe all scored in the match.

Neymar scored twice in the fixture, which included a first half penalty goal. He won the penalty attempt after what many on social media claimed to have been a dive from the Brazilian forward.

The official Twitter account for Globo noted via a Tweet that “Neymar suffers a penalty, let’s say, ghost.”

Neymar responded to the tweet, claiming that as he was “touched,” the penalty call was indeed warranted. He also hit back at such critics by labeling them as a “bunch of people who never even kicked a ball.”

Next up for Neymar and PSG will be the upcoming 2022 Trophee des Champions Final against Nantes, as the club will have an opportunity to win its second trophy of the calendar year.
