Neymar Bio

When we talk about the most entertaining footballer on the planet, who’s name pops up in the head of almost every other football fanatic? It is of course, none other than Neymar da Silva Santos Junior. Currently playing as a forward for French giants Paris Saint Germain, Neymar is undoubtedly one of the best football players the world has ever seen.

The about to be 30-year old Brazilian attacker was born on 5th February 1992 in Mogi das Cruzes, Brazil. Neymar is the definition of a player who possesses the ability to mesmerize the audiences with his magical dribbling skills, creativity, exceptional chance creation prowess, his extraordinary body feints, all of which prove to be the major factors behind leaving every other defender that goes up against him on their knees.

The underlying reason why Neymar is a natural when it comes to playing football is because the Brazilian’s father was himself a professional player. So it comes as no surprise that the 29-year old adopted many of his father’s quintessential Brazilian football traits, ultimately ending up as a master of the beautiful game that is football.

Club and International debut

Santos FCNeymar Jr. made his club debut on 7th March, 2009 with the youth side of Portuguese team Santos FC when he was 11. His debut season with the club saw him find the back of the net 14 times in a total of 48 appearances, which resulted in him bagging the “Best Young Player Award”.

International debut: Neymar made it to the Brazil U-17 squad at the 2009 Under-17 FIFA World Cup. His international debut came on 10th August 2010 in a friendly fixture against England when he was 18. He was included in the starting 11 and donned the 11 numbered jersey for Brazil.
