Bryan Mbeumo has been slammed by football fans on Twitter for a ‘hilarious’ dive during Brentford’s 2-2 draw to Tottenham on Boxing Day.
Spurs staged yet another second-half comeback this season, after the Bees took an early lead at the Brentford Community Stadium, with Vitaly Janelt poking home a loose ball inside the penalty area.
Ivan Toney had a goal disallowed for offside just before half-time, but he came back after the break, doubling their lead from a corner, before two quick-fire goals from Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg put the away side back on level footing.

With both sides searching for a late winner, Bryan Mbeumo surged through on goal and in trying to tap the ball around Spurs ‘keeper Fraser Forster, went to ground inside the box in a bid to win his side a penalty.
It was clear from the replays that any contact that the goalkeeper got on Mbeumo was very minor and the referee saw straight through his antics, awarding him a yellow card for his showmanship.

But many fans have taken to Twitter to criticise the Bees forward with some claiming he should be in show business not football for that ‘hilarious’ dive.
‘Bryan Mbeumo trying to win an Oscar as he goes round Fraser Forster… What an utterly pathetic dive that is’, one wrote.
Another said: ‘That must be the most hilarious dive in football history.’
