The young striker wearing a Man United shirt had an obvious fall in the match against Croatia on the night of December 9
Antony had the ball on the right wing in minute 74. The young Manchester United player turned inside and landed right next to the 16.5 m line.
The Brazilian player waited for a free kick, but the game was allowed to continue by referee Michael Oliver. Antony had collapsed not long after, as slow motion r/ve/a/l/e/d.
Ivan Perisic made the opponent fall into a trap with an experienced tackle. “An outrageous phase; Antony was fortunate to avoid a yellow card,” the BBC said.
“I didn’t know Michael Phelps played football,” sarcastic journalist Samiran Mishra said. “For an embarrassing fall, he deserves a yellow card,” Jason Soutar wrote.
Antony came on in the 56th minute to replace Raphinha in the match against Croatia, but he didn’t leave much of an impression other than a few passes on the right. Brazil attacked aggressively and was rewarded with the first goal of extra time thanks to Neymar’s strike.
However, in the 117th minute, the South American representative allowed Croatia to equalize, then collapsed painfully in the penalty shootout.
Rodrygo, Marquinhos is the one who failed to fulfill “Selecao’s” dream of winning the World Cup.
Neymar was unable to conceal his disappointment as he burst into tears after Brazil was eliminated from the World Cup by Croatia.
The forward appeared to have propelled his team into the semifinals after his brilliant goal in the 106th minute of extra time gave Brazil a 1-0 advantage. Four minutes from time, Bruno Petkovic’s deflected shot sent the game to penalty kicks, where Croatia triumphed to break the hearts of the Brazilians.
Neymar did not even get to take a penalty because he waited until kick number five, but Brazil was eliminated before then when penalty taker number four Marquinhos hit the foot of the post, leaving his teammate inconsolable. Neymar sat on the grass with his head in his hands, distraught over the possibility of missing his final World Cup tournament.
Neymar burst into tears after Brazil was eliminated from the World Cup by Croatia.
After his superb 106th minute goal in extra time gave Brazil a 1-0 lead, the forward appeared to have sent his team into the semi-finals. However, Bruno Petkovic’s deflected strike four minutes from time sent the game to penalties, where Croatia triumphed in the shootout to break Brazilian hearts.
Neymar did not even get to take a penalty because he had to wait until kick number five, but Brazil was eliminated before that point when penalty taker no.4 Marquinhos struck the foot of the post, leaving his teammate inconsolable. Neymar sat on the turf, his head in his hands, distraught over the prospect of missing the World Cup, which could be his final tournament.
But the World Cup has been full of surprises, and when Josko Gvardiol stopped a Brazil attack by making an incredible tackle on Fred, it inspired Croatia. They immediately launched a counterattack, which culminated in Petkovic’s shot slipping under Alisson’s outstretched arm and into the corner.
When the game went into penalties, Brazil was under a lot of pressure, which wasn’t relieved when Livakovic stopped Rodrygo’s shot to keep Brazil ahead by one after Nikola Vlasic’s penalty, which he dispatched straight down the middle.
As his teammates had done, Lovro Majer drove the ball down the middle to confuse Alisson, but Casemiro’s powerful finish kept Brazil within striking distance. Before Pedro and Mislav Orsic both scored, Luka Modric showed his class by coolly converting his penalty kick.
Marquinhos’ strike sent Livakovic the wrong way, but it cannoned back off the post to send Brazil home and Croatia’s players into jubilant celebrations. A goal from Marquinhos would put pressure on Croatia’s final kicker.
