Neymar And Edinson Cavani Furious With Each Other As PSG Team-Mates Clash During Brazil Win Over Uruguay

Neymar was involved in an ugly confrontation with PSG club-mate Edinson Cavani during Brazil’s 1-0 international friendly win against Uruguay.

The two are rumoured to not see eye-to-eye that the French club, and it was perhaps no surprise they clashed on the international stage.

was attacking down the left when Cavani came rushing and sent the world’s most expensive player sprawling.

While it appeared to be more clumsy than malicious, Neymar, not for the first time, made the most of the challenge.

Cavani was left shocked that the free-kick was given, and even more so when the referee brandished a yellow card.

The Uruguay man went over to haul his PSG team-mate up from the turf, but Neymar was less-than happy with that.

The two strikers had words before play resumed.

Neymar proved the match-winner in the international friendly, as he scored the only goal from the penalty spot.

But the clash with his PSG team-mate will only heighten speculation that the two don’t get on.

A year ago they clashed when deciding who would take a penalty in the Ligue 1 clash against Troyes.

Cavani was dragged down in the area against Troyes to win the spot-kick in the first-half.

Neymar looked like he was going to step up and take the penalty before his Uruguayan team-mate seemed to snatch the ball off of him again.

The world’s most expensive player then seemed to begrudgingly walk away before Cavani had his penalty saved anyway.

They had clashed earlier in the season as they argued over who should take spot kicks.

They have shared penalty duties since but there were rumours the rift had ruffled some feathers in the PSG dressing room.
