Poor old Neymar has found himself the butt of a number of jokes this summer, with the Brazilian’s World Cup theatrics even inspiring a ‘Neymar challenge’.
With PSG travelling to Nimes in Ligue 1 on Saturday, the home fans created a banner calling the wafty striker a ‘chorona’, or ‘cry baby’ in Portuguese.
So, when Neymar opened the scoring on 36 minutes, he jogged over to the banner and celebrated with a ‘cry baby’ celebration of his very own…

Fair dues to him!
In an eventful clash at the Stade des Costieres, Angel Di Maria wound up scoring directly from a corner to put PSG 2-0 ahead…
However, goals from Antonin Bobichon and Teji Savanier put the home side level inside the 71st minute.
Teen sensation Kylian Mbappe then popped up to score a bit of a stunner to put the reigning Ligue 1 champions back in front.
Edinson Cavani would go on to seal the deal for PSG late on, rounding out a 4-2 win in the 92nd minute.
There was still time for more drama, with Mbappe sent off after reacting to a challenge on him from Savanier, who was also dismissed.
That’s how it all ended – six goals and ten men apiece.
Moreover, that’s now four wins from four league matches for PSG, who already look strong favourites for a sixth title in seven years.
