Filthy! Serbia’s Petrović cynically kicks Brazil Neymar from behind, rightly booked [Video]
- Updated: June 6, 2014
Serbia haven’t exactly proven the friendliest of opponents for Brazil tonight.
The Balkan side have played extremely physically, getting borderline late challenges in on the World Cup hosts, and making sure the Selecao know they’re in a game.
The extent of their cynicism was shown by Petrovic, who filthily kicked and tripped Neymar from behind, sending the Brazilian flying through the air (looked theatrical, but his left foot was kicked against his right, sending him flying).
Petrovic was rightly booked, but as the commentator points out, it could easily have been a red, as Petrovic quite blatantly kicks Neymar and makes no attempt to play the ball.
