Neymar featured for the full 90 minutes as Al-Hilal were held 1-1 by the minnows from Uzbekistan.

Navbahor took the lead after 52 minutes and a frustrated Neymar’s temper flared soon after.

He was unable to take a quick free-kick as an opponent was standing in-front of the ball.

The former Barcelona and PSG man was furious and pushed him to the ground.

He then fired the ball at the player as he fell to the floor.

Neymar picked up a yellow card because of the incident.

Fans slammed his behaviour, one said: “This is why no European club was interested in him, he is so toxic.”

Another suggested he might want to get a red card, commenting: “Is his sister’s birthday coming up or something?”

Following Neymar’s antics, Al-Hilal eventually equalised in the tenth minute of stoppage time via Ali Albulayhi to salvage a point in their group stage opener.

It was the Brazilian’s second game after appearing as a substitute in the 6-1 win over Al-Riyadh on Friday.

His debut saw boos from fans as he was denied the chance to take a penalty as Salem Al-Dawsari stepped up to convert instead.

Al-Hilal paid £77.6million for Neymar and he is set to pocket £2.5m per week.
