Neymar delivers low blow in Beijing
[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] While seven teams booked 2014 World Cup tickets on Tuesday, host Brazil traveled to China where it faced Zambia in a friendly at
Beijing's Bird's Nest Stadium. The Brazilians prevailed, 2-0, on goals by Oscar and Dede while superstar Neymar incurred the wrath of his foes for a shot that hit Emmanuel
Mbola in a most unfortunate spot.
Just before the halftime whistle, Neymar fired the volley that felled Mbola, whose teammates seemed convinced the Brazilian aimed there on
purpose. A close look at the slo-mo replay, though, reveals that Mbola had taken his eye off the ball at the wrong moment.
