The frustrations with the Olympic soccer team of Brazil is so great, in which fans are taunting Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior and wishing the women's soccer team star Marta Vieira da Silva could come to the rescue.

While the 30 year old Marta has been thriving with the women's team of Brazil, Neymar on the other hand became a disappointment at the men's Olympic tournament, where their country is facing early elimination in a scenario that seemed unthinkable in the soccer-obsessed host country.

As fans witnessed Brazil struggle in a 0-0 draw against Iraq, they taunted Neymar by chanting the name of Marta at the Mane Garrincha Stadium in Brasilia, wishing Marta could resolve the problems of the men's team, according to The Washington Post.

Afterward, Coach Rogério Micale expressed his regrets to the fans, which seems to be a good idea. But the reaction was overcome with anger. Fans in the Brazil soccer stadium showed disapproval to the team and chanted for Iraq at the end of the match, based on the report of NY Times.
