DeAndre Yedlin had some quality Neymar banter

USMNT full back to referee: “Did you watch the World Cup?”

There weren’t many highlights from the United States’ 2-0 loss to Brazil on Friday, but there was at least one moment that put a smile on fans’ faces. It came in the first half when DeAndre Yedlin was called for a foul on Neymar near midfield. As is customary, Neymar made the most of it.

What made this incident interesting, though, was Yedlin going to the referee and asking a simple question: “Did you watch the World Cup?”

This was an obvious reference to Neymar’s shenanigans in Russia which got quite a bit of attention.

It’s just the latest example of Yedlin making his fellow Seattleites proud.
