Can we talk about this picture? I have a lot of feelings about this scene. He’s not screaming at the referee, he is not trying to freeze the match. The ball is already half pitch away and the game is still going, but when Ney says he can’t feel his legs, Marcelo screams at the benchs. He screams at the paramedics and the staff and anyone to just freaking help him. He’s not asking for a fucking foul, a card, any kind of punishment, he just needs to get some help soon, because he’s freaking out. You see, by his position, how he was trying to help him move. When he realizes he can’t, he stays there, one leg around Neymar’s leg, in a fiercely protective stance, begging for help. At that moment, Marcelo was every single brazilian watching the game.
Help. The wonder boy is down.
(Also would like to point out how they play for rival clubs. Actually, rival giants.)
