Brazilian striker Neymar mocked the attack against him because of his weight, after his country’s match against its Chilean host (1-0) at dawn today, Friday, in the qualifiers for the World Cup “Qatar 2022”.

Neymar posted a picture of him after the match through his personal account on the “Instagram” website, and commented on it, saying: “I admit that the meeting was not the best, but the victory was achieved in the end.”
He added about his explanation for his weight gain: “The shirt was a size G which is bigger than what I usually wear, in the next match I will order a size M.” He accompanied his explanation with laughter-filled emojis, but this did not stop the exclamation state of the image in which the player appeared.
It is noteworthy that Neymar appeared for the first time with Paris this season against his host Reims last Sunday, and he went out in the 60th minute of the meeting, and Argentine star Lionel Messi entered his place in his first appearance in the Paris team shirt.
Neymar was subjected to a violent attack after the Reims match by the French press because of his poor level and lack of physical fitness.
Brazil leads the South American qualifying group for the 2022 World Cup with a full score with 21 points, 6 points ahead of its Argentine runner-up, followed by Ecuador and Uruguay in third and fourth places, respectively, with 9 points each.
