Clarence Seedorf, Alan Shearer & Gary Lineker call Marcelo out as a ‘cheater’ for dive v Mexico [Video]
2 games, 2 incidents of blatant diving from World Cup hosts Brazil.
After Fred’s theatrics in the opener against Croatia, Real Madrid lateral Marcelo emulated his teammate with a dive that was nearly just as bad as ‘Frejjie’s.
Marcelo was breaking in on goal, when he got the slightest touch on the shoulder from a Mexico, and threw himself to the ground, looking at the ref for complicity before he even took the dive.
In the BBC studio, the lads were outraged by Marcelo’s behaviour, Clarence Seedorf, and Alan Shearer calling him out for ‘blatant cheating, 1 word: cheating’.
Strangely, Thierry Henry remained silent on the question, though seemed to be in agreement with his colleagues.
