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 ┬ástudio, 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.
