Here’s the exact amount of time Neymar spent rolling on the ground at the World Cup


Haha! The World Cup is just half-way through, but Neymar has spent quite some time pretending he’s injured. Ain’t it funny that the PSG forward also does this in training, as well.
Maybe he was joking during training, but isn’t it a bit weird.
Look, we know some sides have actively targetted him and tried to rough him up, but the dude loves a bit of exaggeration.
How much exaggeration, we hear you ask…
A whole fourteen minutes to be exact.
This stat comes courtesy of Swiss outlet RTS Sports, they took one of the team and tallied it all up. Sure, Neymar has been fouled 23 times at the World Cup, but he has milked those fouls for all they’re worth.
