Arsenal fans are drooling over what Lucas Torreira did to Neymar at the Emirates
Torreira has been a huge hit at the Emirates since arriving from Sampdoria after the World Cup for a bargain £22million
BRAZIL beat Uruguay at the Emirates on Friday, but all watching Arsenal fans cared about was their man Lucas Torreira dishing out the rough stuff to Neymar.
The tough-tackling midfielder has been an instant hit in North London since his £22million arrival from Sampdoria after the World Cup.
The 22-year-old got stuck into the Paris Saint-Germain superstar on 24 minutes with a crunching tackle that earned him a yellow card.
Torreira was at it again after the break, this time his biting challenge on the Brazilian was legit, and then seconds later robbed he the ball off Liverpool striker Roberto Firminio to send the Gunners into social media meltdown.
One Gooner tweeted: “Making fools of GOATS one tackle at a time. He doesn’t care who you are. He will find you and he will take you out.”
Liam said: “Just seeing clips of Lucas Torriera last night. How the hell did we pick him up for the cash we did. Absolute snip. Mislintat is the man.”
Patrick Ortiz added: “I’m still trying to imagine how Lucas Torreira escaped the attention of Juventus in the same league Sven Mislintat did a good scouting job.”
And why did Torreira want to get up close and personal to Neymar?
After the game, he revealed he missed out on meeting the worlds most expensive player while he was at Barcelona and was not going to miss out again.
He said: “A couple of years ago I played a tournament at Camp Nou with Sampdoria but Neymar didn’t feature.”
But Neymar got the last laugh scoring from the penalty spot to win it for Brazil after Diego Laxalt was adjudged to have fouled Manchester City’s Danilo.
