Following Neymar’s red card in Brazil’s loss to Colombia, his Barcelona teammate and Brazilian defender Dani Alves has said that ‘everybody is against Brazil’.
Neymar was dismissed by referee Enrique Osses after the final whistle for a petulant headbutt on Colombia defender Jeison Murillo, while Carlos Bacca also got involved in the incident, and the full-back believes the blame for his skipper’s bad night should lie at the feet of the officials.
“I don’t know why Neymar was nervous,” Alves told TV Globo. “The blame is on the referees. They know he has personality. The yellow card he received was wrong. They have to stop thinking that they are the protagonists. They are there to referee the game.”
