Neymar sparks trolling with his haircut

Neymar sparks trolling with his haircut in Brazil's World Cup opener

It is a tragedy!

Neymar Jr has dominated most conversations on social media after he was seen sporting an unfamiliar haircut in Brazil's first group game with Switzerland on Sunday. Although his new look barely affects his immense talent and capability, it is believed that the reason for it is to divert attention from the fact that he recently returned from a lengthy injury lay-off.

However, that has not immune the 26-year-old from the influx of trolling and reproach on Twitter. Here are some of the reactions from fans:

In retrospect, Neymar's 'ridiculous' haircut has the same precedent as that of Ronaldo de Lima in 2002. The legendary Real Madrid and Brazil forward sidetracked the attention of fans with his famous haircut after a suffering a near-career-ending knee injury in 2000.

He subsequently fired the Selecao to their fifth World Cup triumph with his eight goals.
