Neymar in agony used by French firemen to plug first aid course
Neymar's World Cup misery may well be complete after firemen in France used a picture of him on the ground with Brazil in Russia to advertise first aid lessons.
The Paris Saint-Germain superstar was unable to prevent the South Americans from crashing out at the hands of Belgium in the quarterfinals and he attracted more attention with his hairstyles and perceived diving than his on-pitch contributions.

A) Victime déjà en PLS, je ne touche à rien
B) Nous sommes en présence d'une #Routourne qui tourne : Je n'appelle pas les secours
C) Je ne sais pas... J'en profite donc pour m'inscrire au #PSC1 en ligne (je peux même régler par CB) https://t.co/fnuHB3oDFp pic.twitter.com/Hj3rUkXTYI
The firemen likened Neymar writhing in agony to somebody in the recovery position and a spinning wheel, urging people to sign up for first aid lessons to help others in similar circumstances.
Not the end to the World Cup Neymar had in mind at the start of the tournament. He must be hoping that potential French success this weekend will erase the memory of his disappointing campaign for when he returns to PSG for the new season.
