VIDEO: Neymar flicks large insect off Dani Alves’s head before Brazil vs Colombia

Crisis averted.


Neymar flicked a large insect off Dani Alves’s head during the build-up to Brazil’s 2-2 friendly draw with Colombia at Florida’s Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday.

The bug, which looks like a dragonfly, decided to perch on top of the veteran right-back, prompting his team-mate to spring into action.

PSG forward Neymar, who has been linked with a return to Barcelona, alerts Alves to the situation and prepares to swat the creature away.

Alves spins around with an alarmed look on his face, but both players laugh the moment off once Neymar has dealt with it.

Casemiro gave Brazil a 19th minute lead, with a Luis Muriel double turning the game on its head before Neymar equalised before the hour mark.
