Brazil's talent for producing amazing footballers? We present proof number one: Neymar jr.
Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, common known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., was born the 5th of February in Sâo Paulo, Brazil. He began his youth career in the club Portuguesa Santisa, but in 2003 he moved to another Brazilian club known as Santos. Here, Neymar made his professional debut at the age of 17. The move to Santos should later prove not to be a bad idea, as he became one of the most spectacular and hyped players in the world. Neymar's crazy skills earned him a spot in FC Barcelona in 2013, and since then, Neymar has never looked back.
Neymar has become one of the most popular football players on the planet. The smaller but oh so fast Brazilian, has taken the world by storm - using his talent for tricks, acceleration and flair for goals.
Every fan knows Neymar, everyone wants to be him and wear his Neymar football boots. We all want to be like Neymar and fly down the pitch, with the football glued to our feet. Some days the only way to stop him seems to be to do an illegal tackle - it is almost impossible to close him down on his best days.
