SOFIANE FEGHOULI theatrically tumbled to the ground after an "elbow" from Sadio Mane in the Africa Cup of Nations final.
And the Algeria winger left fans wondering whether he tried to pull off a cheeky impersonation of Neymar.

Feghouli, 29, stood next to Mane, 27, as both sides were getting ready for a corner – with Algeria already winning 1-0.
The Liverpool star approached the former West Ham ace, before giving him a little shove.
Feghouli initially remained still and even made a couple of steps back.
But the Algeria ace then suddenly hit the ground heavily, squirming as if in serious pain.
And fans on social media were quick to point out the reminiscence of his acting to Neymar's 2018 World Cup antics.
The Brazil star, 27, famously rolled over the pitch for a few seconds after being tackled by Fabian Schar in a 1-1 draw with Switzerland.
And Ilu3k tweeted: "Mane apparently has shotguns for arms. #dramaqueen"
John added: "The play acting has been bloody woeful."
