Neymar’s Stunning Performance Marred By Racism

This video evidence shows the banana being taken off the pitch by Brazil players.

Teen sensation Neymar provided a stunning spectacle for the Emirates crowd on Sunday, only to have a banana thrown at him later in the game.

Neymar scored both goals in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Scotland including one from the penalty spot.

The Scottish FA have denied any racism took place although a Brazilian TV Channel has video evidence to suggest otherwise.

Some people are claiming that there was nothing racist in the match and abusive chants were only thrown for Neymar’s apparent feigning of injury.

Neymar was looking unbelivably dangerous every single time he was in possession.

The 19-year-old Santos forward repeatedly showed why he is a huge transfer target for both Chelsea and Manchester City.

After 42 minutes a lovely turn and neatly placed shot gave Brazil the lead.

Later in the game he won a penalty following a foul by Charlie Adam and cooly converted past the Scottish goalkeeper.
