New Delhi: Soccer is a sport that has manic fans across the globe. The energy and enthusiasm with which the game is followed, is definitely contagious.
The latest victim of the soccer bug, it seems, is Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and looks like he's got it bad.
By way of a Facebook video, Zuckerberg has thrown a soccer challenge at none other than Barcelona's football striker Neymar Jr.!
“I've never won a soccer game in my life, but, today's my day. I'm challenging Neymar to our secret soccer emoji game in messenger... Let's give it a shot,” says the social media giant in his video.
The forward player for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team wasted no time in accepting Zuckerberg’s challenge, with a comment on the video which read, “Challenge accepted!! I’ll train and tomorrow I’ll talk to you.”

Zuckerberg, however, seems pretty confident about his victory in the “emoji” football match. He says, “I think I’ve got a good shot because this is all about using a phone and some strong solid thumbs and I feel like I’ve got that on him.”
To play the game, all you need to do is first ensure that you have the latest version of Messenger, open a conversation window with a friend or a group of friends, send the soccer ball emoji, tap on the soccer ball emoji and enjoy the game!
After many attempts, Mark finally managed to score 37 points. It's your turn, Neymar, and the game is on!
