Santos: The Bad, The Ugly & The GoodBy: The Offside | July 9th, 2012
The bee’s knees wish they could be Neymar. He’s just phenomenal, even if Pele is serving as his personal hypeman and doing most of the work for him. However, he’s also a bit of diver. Quite a bit. And he enjoys flinging himself in the air, even when there’s no contact. Which he actually paid for with this little dive by slapping his ankle off the turf. Karma.
The free kick by Felipe Anderson, meanwhile, was of spectacularly good placement anyway, but it was met with a gorgeous flick-in by the Gremio defender. A lot of things go both splendidly wrong and right in this little sequence.
