Neymar, Teammates Get Cold Reception on Arrival in Brazil

Brazil was knocked out at the last-16 stage of the World Cup following a 2-1 defeat to Belgium in the Kazan Arena on Friday.

Neymar – who was on the floor during the tournament for 14 minutes according to statisticians at Swiss broadcaster RTS – wrote on Instagram afterwards the Selecao‘s exit was the “saddest moment of my career”. So even more upsetting than the 2014 humiliation, then.

But it doesn’t seem like the entire country’s fans have sympathy for the 26-year-old, or the rest of the squad, as a small group of supporters hurled eggs at the team bus as it rolled through the Brazilian countryside.

In dramatic footage, an angry crowd gathers around the green bus, as it crawls down a highway.

Fans wearing Brazilian shirts and flags bring the vehicle to a halt as they throw rocks and eggs at it.

The bus advances slowly, only for the mob to keep pelting the vehicle.

But the coach manages to get through the onslaught, accelerating away from the angered fans.
