Brazil failed “in things that should not have failed” and that is why they gave up an unexpected 1-1 draw at home against Venezuela this Thursday in Cuiabá, On the third day of the South American qualifier for the 2026 World Cup, said the Brazilian coach, Fernando Diniz.
He considered it “disrespectful” that a fan threw a bucket of popcorn at Neymar, when the star was heading to the dressing room after the end of the match.

The incident generated discomfort in the ’10’, who would have insulted the person responsible, according to local media.
“I completely disapprove. Insulting and booing, everything is fine. Throwing a package of popcorn doesn’t do anyone any good. It’s a lack of respect for those who came to play and tried to do their best,” said the coach.
Diniz assured that the ‘Canarinha’ must now concentrate on beating Uruguay (4th) in Marcelo Bielsa on Tuesday at Montevideoat the closing of the October international window.
“We have to be prepared for all possible scenarios there, in Montevideo,” he said.
Neymar was not far behind and this was his reaction.
“Its something sad. Very sad. I didn’t come here on vacation. And even less to walk. I came to do what I love most, which is to play soccer and defend my country,” she commented.
And he added: “We are doing our best, giving our best, and many times the result does not come, something that the fan does not expect.”
“That fan threw… I didn’t see what it was, I just noticed that he hit me and I was very nervous. I condemn that type of attitude. It is bad for football and for human beings. A guy who does that kind of thing is not an educated person nor is he going to be able to educate his children in the best possible way,” he stated.
