Uruguay captain Diego Lugano believes that Brazil striker Neymar likes to "fool" referees by going to ground softly.

Uruguay captain Diego Lugano believes that Brazil striker Neymar tries to "fool" referees by going to ground.

Lugano's side face Brazil in the semi-final of the Confederations Cup later today and the 32-year-old is hopeful that referee is wise to the alleged tricks of the Barcelona forward.

Lugano told reporters: "Neymar is lightweight – he falls to the ground and fools the referee.

"He can feign a foul and we must be watchful that nobody is fooled by his ability. The Chilean ref assignment is a coincidence. He will be under bigger pressure - I just hope he makes no mistakes."

Uruguay hit top form in their last match as they beat Tahiti convincingly to advance to the last four of the competition.
