Tipped as the danger man for the Selecao, the 26-year-old was instead marked out of the game by Behrami.And it helped the Swiss claim a potentially vital point against the tournament hosts in Rostov.Former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring with a superb curling effort before Steven Zuber’s powerful header earned a point for the underdogs.After being fouled 10 times during the game, Neymar’s fans posted vicious messages on Behrami’s Instagram account. 2 Behrami was eventually booked for his rough treatment of the PSG star While some of the messages cannot be repeated, many were upset at the news Neymar faces a race to be fit for Brazil’s next game against Costa Rica on Friday.One fumed: “If you ever come to Brazil we’ll get you.”Another user claimed: “I’m going to knock that grin off your face.”Others wrote “Anyone who tangles with Neymar tangles with us all” and “You are on Brazil’s blacklist”.Trolls even blitzed the account of Behrami’s girlfriend, Swiss skier Lara Gut, with insults.However, the Udinese midfielder retorted by saying:  “Neymar always tries to provoke you. He’s always going to ground.“I just tried to do my job, and we got a good result.”Behrami ended a three-year spell with West Ham in 2011. He made 63 appearances, scoring five goals.The midfielder joined Watford in 2015, and played 49 times without scoring before a move to Udinese last year. 2last_img
