Former Brazil national team striker Ronaldo has described criticism of Neymar as nonsense. 

The 26-year-old has received judgement for some of his theatrics when being tackled during the World Cup.

Following his side's 2-0 defeat to Brazil in the last 16, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio accused Neymar of "too much acting".

But Ronaldo said: "There are many ways to see football and interpret it. I am against all these opinions (on Neymar acting). He is an intelligent player in his movements and on how to defend himself from being tackled. I don't think referees have been protecting him enough. When people repeatedly hit me I would feel a sense of unfairness. Criticism is nonsense. TV shows and newspapers just want to fill the space," said Ronaldo
