Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar appeared to try and plant a kiss on Yerry Mina during Brazil's fiery World Cup qualifier with Colombia.

Brazil's perfect start to qualifying came to an end on Sunday evening as they were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw in Barranquilla.

Both sides had plenty of chances, but the game will be best remembered for a bizarre incident involving Neymar and Mina.

Following a heavy coming together which left both men on the deck, Mina went over to the PSG star to have some frank words.

The former Barcelona forward wasn't in the mood for a chat, standing up and moving his face close to the Everton defender's.

Neymar then pursed his lips in a kissing gesture towards the 27-year-old centre-half.

Unlike the challenge which preceded the incident, the kiss didn't make contact with Mina, who walked away from the striker.

Incensed, Neymar then proceeded to commit a silly foul on full-back Stefan Medina.

Football fans on Twitter were quick to react to the bizarre exchange, with one saying: "Bromance between Neymar Jr. and Yerry Mina."

Another person added: "I feel like Neymar and Mina will be really good friends off the pitch tbh."

"Everyone wants a piece of Mina," commented someone else.

While a fourth user joked: "Neymar??? OWNED BY YERRI MINA."

Neymar had an evening to forget against Colombia, misplacing 17 passes as Brazil laboured to a 0-0 draw.

Brazil coach Tite said of the striker: "He is an exceptional player because he makes exceptional plays, he does it exceptionally and not ordinarily.

"He is a special player, we know it. And he was also well marked, sometimes by two players."

The Samba Boys are still in pole position to qualify for the 2022 World Cup - a tournament which Neymar says could be his last.

He said: "I think it (2022) will be my last World Cup.

"I am facing it like the last World Cup because I don't know whether I will be able to, mentally, to endure more soccer.

"I will do everything possible to get there very well. I will do all I can to win it with my country and realise my dream, the biggest since my boyhood."
