Lugano hits out at Neymar and Brazil

Diego Lugano has ratcheted up the heat ahead of tonight’s game between his Uruguay side and Brazil by criticising Neymar.

Accusing the former Santos forward of diving, Lugano also hit out at Brazil for playing functional football and abandoning their style.

“Neymar can feign a foul and so we must be watchful that nobody is fooled by his ability,” Lugano told reporters. “Neymar is very lightweight, he can drop to the ground and fool the referee and rivals.

“Brazil is a team that has abandoned the beautiful game, they hit hard and they are very tough physically. I have played here and it is perhaps the toughest football in Latin America and it is a tactical system they apply.”
