"He is the hero of every Brazilian and of everyone who loves soccer. He had some great moves today. People who have that genius can make a difference."

-- Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari on 21-year-old Neymar, whose goal in Brazil's 4-2 win over Italy on Saturday gave him three goals in three straight Confederations Cup game. Host Brazil faces Uruguay in the semifinals on Wednesday. (Reuters)

    Pure BS. He is a cheat, much in the Marcello mold. Dives like a fish, hacks and chops at every opportunity. Crys like a baby every time he's touched. Should already have at least two yellows (Howard Webb chickened out in Mexico match). Remains to be seen whether Messi and Xavi can help him clean up his act at Barca. What is disgusting is that he doesn't need to cheat -- he is so talented that he could conduct himself like Messi and still be one of the greats. Also disgusting that the "soccer press" continues to worship him and never mentions his cheating -- except Alexi Lalas.
