Jesse Lingard trolls England teammate Marcus Rashford over Neymar conversation
Jesse Lingard has mocked his England and Manchester United teammate Marcus Rashford for discussing the weather with Neymar when they met last November.
The two players were pictured having a brief exchange in the Wembley tunnel prior to a friendly between the Three Lions and Brazil at the end of last year, which ended in a 0-0 draw.
Rashford could just about be heard engaging in small talk with the Selecao star, who was not enjoying the cold London weather.
What Neymar & Rashford said to each other
Neymar: [Are you] good?
Rashford: How long have you been here? How long [before] youre leaving?
Rashford: You go?
Rashford: Its cold!
Neymar: Today is…
Rashford: Its not so bad today. Usually its…
Neymar: I dont like the cold.
Rashford [laughs]: Its not for you, eh?
Neymar [laughs]: No, its so cold!
Their meeting came up in a quiz on Englands YouTube channel as the two teammates answered questions about each other, and Lingard could not believe Rashford had brought up such a boring topic.
Lingard read out the question: What did Marcus and Neymar talk about in the tunnel at Wembley? The beautiful weather, the London nightlife – which he knows nothing about – or the Nike boots.
Im going to go for C, the Nike boots.
As Rashford prepared to reveal all, Lingard caught a flash of his card with the answer written on it and immediately stood up in disbelief: Do not even! No, no, no, no, no. The weather?! The weather? The weather?!
He then mocked his teammate as Rashford protested, continuing: “You alright Neymar, yeah its sunny isnt it? Yo Neymar you good yeah? Its sunny innit?”
No, I am not having that. I am not having that whatsoever.
Rashford – who suggested they had discussed other things beyond the weather when not in the tunnel – ultimately won the quiz against Lingard by one single point.
