This Is Probably How Neymar Spends His Summer Vacation
If anyone needs some rest and relaxation after the 2018 World Cup, it’s Neymar. The Brazilian was hacked down more times per match than any other player at the tournament. Fortunately for you, we here at The18 have exclusive footage of what a Neymar vacation probably looks like.
Neymar suffered 26 fouls in five matches in Russia. Only Belgium’s Eden Hazard was fouled more, but he played more matches. While many lambasted the Brazil forward for rolling around, he was trying to protect himself from physical aggressors trying to keep him from having a good time.
Unfortunately, this is probably what happens to Neymar when he tries to go on vacation.

This definitely wasn’t a dive; the dolphin clearly did it on porpoise. (Sorry, not sorry.)
Hopefully any actual Neymar vacation this summer does not end up as a flop as this poor fellow’s vacation did.
Meanwhile, Neymar’s club team is already in midseason form in preseason. Paris Saint-Germain lost to Bayern Munich 3-1 in an International Champions Cup match on Saturday. But Neymar won’t need to rush back from any vacation anytime soon because American 18-year-old Tim Weah has everything under control.
PSG’s next match is against former boss Unai Emery as the Ligue 1 champion takes on Arsenal on July 28 in Singapore. Paris Saint-Germain will take on Monaco in the Trophee des Champions on August 4 before opening the Ligue 1 campaign against Caen on August 12.
Of course, all that matters for PSG this season is how it performs in the Champions League. The group stage for the Champions League will start on Sept. 18.
