The Neymar Challenge, that is to say the act of suddenly collapsing to the floor and rolling around, is the new trend of Summer 2018. Inspired by the Brazilian player, who spent nearly as much time on the ground as he did playing football during the World Cup, internet surfers still haven’t had enough of the Neymar Challenge.
Even if nearly every possible version of the Neymar Challenge had already been done, one was still missing: that undertaken by the player himself. Now it’s completed. Neymar poked fun at himself by publishing a video of him doing the Neymar Challenge with a group of children on his Instagram page. The act certainly succeeded in generating a bit of sympathy for the player who failed to impress at the World Cup in Russia.
