Neymar’s Dive is a photoshop meme based on a replay footage of Brazilian footballer Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior diving while tussling with Uruguay defender Walter Gargano during the semi-final match of 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.
On June 26th, 2013, the FIFA Confederations Cup semi-final match between Brazil and Uruguay took place at the Mineirão stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. In the 86th minute, score of 1 – 1, Neymar, a 21-year-old rising star who had recently signed with Spain’s renowned FC Barcelona, assisted the tie-breaker with a corner kick which was then headed into the goal by Paulinho. Then in the 90th minute, with only overtime left in the game, Neymar got in a scuffle with Uruguay defender Walter Gargano, at which point he suddenly took a dive to feign a foul (shown below). That same day, the footage was uploaded by YouTuber MovieMonsterZer0.
