Neymar and Son swap shirts following friendly

Neymar and Son swap shirts following Brazil’s friendly thrashing of South Korea… as Emerson Royal reveals the Tottenham forward asked him if the PSG star even knows who he is!

  • Brazil beat South Korea 5-1 in a friendly before the players exchange shirts
  • Son revealed by Emerson Royal to admire the Brazilian Neymar 
  • Neymar posts an Instagram story of the two players together after the game

Brazilian superstar Neymar posted a photo of him and Tottenham Hotspur forward Heung-min Son on his Instagram story. 

The South Korean Son is believed to be a big admirer of Neymar, with one of his club team-mates revealing that he asks him whether or not the Brazilian knows who he is.

‘Does he know me?’ Emerson Royal has revealed to ESPN Brazil Son asks him about Neymar.

‘I reply: “Hey Son, of course he knows you, man. Just as you admire him, he can admire you too. You’re a star, you play a lot of ball.”‘

The photo was posted in the aftermath of Brazil’s 5-1 evisceration of South Korea at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. 

Neymar posted a photo of the two with each other’s shirts in the changing rooms, accompanied by the word ‘crack’.

Presumably it is an iteration on the Portuguese slang ‘craque’ which means an ‘ace’, with Neymar believing that Son fits that bill. 

Despite this definition, Son struggled to influence the game in South Korea as Brazil ran out easy winners in the capital city.

Goals from Richarlison, Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus ensured a comfortable win for Brazil in a country in which their nation has fond memories, with the 2002 World Cup across South Korea and Japan delivering the Selecao’s fifth World Cup in all.

Hwang Ul-jo, who plays for Bordeaux as well as the South Korean national team, scored their consolation. 

Son did not let the result dampen his spirits, however, with the Spurs forward grinning from ear to ear as he met one of his footballing idols after the game.

In a clip posted to his own Instagram story, Son shared a long embrace with Neymar after the game. The two superstars appear to share a few words, perhaps agreeing to swap shirts. 

Appreciation from Neymar appears to have slightly softened the blow to Son of not being nominated for the PFA Players Player of the Year award. 

Son, despite finishing joint-top scorer alongside Mohamed Salah on 23 goals in the Premier League was overlooked while controversial selections were made in Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane.
