England coach Neville in Brazil controversy over f-word blast

England coach Gary Neville has sparked controversy upon touching down in Brazil.

The Mirror says Neville has been accused of getting involved in a four-letter exchange with a TV cameraman on just hours after England's arrival in Brazil for the World Cup.

Brazilian newspaper O Globo has reported that England assistant coach Neville told the cameraman to "f*** off" while he accompanied some of the Three Lions' staff on a walk after landing in Rio on Sunday.

But it is understood the cameraman followed Neville for about a mile and was provocative; and those near to him at the time say the former Manchester United and England defender showed restraint.
