WORLD CUP fans were left confused by Kim Seung-gyu’s attempt to save Neymar’s penalty.
The superstar put his side 2-0 up from the penalty spot in Brazil’s last-16 clash against South Korea.
Kim tried to play mind games with Neymar by standing on one side of the goal as he prepared to take his spot-kick.
The shot-stopper then moved to the centre of the goal as Neymar began his stuttered run-up.
And the Paris Saint-Germain star came out on top after slotting his penalty to Kim’s left.
The shot lacked power and precision but deceived Kim, who began diving to the opposite corner.
Fans found the incident both amusing and puzzling, with many baffled by the keeper’s attempts at distracting Neymar.
One supporter wrote: “What was the keeper doing. First trying to put Neymar off hilariously. Now letting a pea roller of a penalty in.”
Another added: “What was the keeper doing for that penalty.”
And a third said: “All that prancing about form the Korean keeper and he don’t even attempt to save the penalty,”
Neymar also won praise for his poise with some suggesting he embarrassed South Korea’s no1.
One fan said: “That might be the most disrespectful penalty I’ve ever seen 😭. The keeper was playing checkers while Neymar was playing chess.”
Another commented: “That penalty embarrassed the keeper 😂.”
