hopefully they implement this in Fifa 2021, yellow card for doing consecutive skills
Ιt is similar to the mockery of the athleticism sportsman

Maybe Neymar told also something offensive to the referee, cause they seem to talk and after this, the referee makes the move to book him, he did not seem to want to book him from the beginning. Still not sure.

Now at general there is a rule against parodying the sport. In greek it is called "mockery of the sport", i do not know how is the official rule called in English. Despite this, it is rarely applied. I remember a game i saw years ago, between two African national teams, which it was 0-0 and both teams would qualify by draw, so from around 35' the one team was 11 men behind the midfield and the other team was changing passes between their GK and their two CBs, without anyone pressing them or trying to mark them, from the opponent team. IIRC the referee booked everyone on the field for "mockery of the sport", cause nobody was playing football.
An other example is this case with Verratti on the video below.

P.S.: interesting that both incidents happened in Ligue 1!

There are myriad tales about Fergie worth retelling. Unsurprising really given his personality, longevity and success.

Here's a letter he sent to two Aberdeen players who were caught throwing a ball from a hotel balcony in Spain (early 80s):

The guy was/is incredible. Met him a couple of times, as a kid and as an adult, and both times it was like I was his long-lost grandson.

I'm not a huge lover of the team, player, manager, stadium or fans in question, but those celebrations for Griffiths' second (around 0:50 in) - holy shit.

Three years ago today, kinda. Oh Stuart Armstrong, just clear the ball...

@Flipper the Priest And just about ending Joe Hart's career in the process!
Never rated him. He's done VERY well for himself.

I don't think England have had a reliable keeper since Seaman. And even he had the obligatory major tournament howler in 2002. I'd even argue that in the last 10 years Scotland - between Gordon, Marshall and McGregor - have been better off. Shame about every other position.

Can't really argue with any of that. I always thought Marshall was an excellent keeper.
