Video what’s neymar’s real name

Background

Neymar is a Brazilian professional soccer player who plays for Al Hilal and the Brazil national team. Neymar is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world. He started playing football as a boy in the city of São Vicente under the guidance of his father, a former professional footballer who remained a close mentor throughout his son’s career. He played street and indoor soccer and joined the Portuguesa Santista youth team in São Vicente, and in 2003 he and his family moved to Santos city.

Already an impressive player, he joined the youth ranks of Santos Futebol Clube (the same club for which Brazilian football legend Pelé played for most of his national career). At 14 years old, Real Madrid wanted him and Santos Futebol Club had to increase his salary to keep him. He made his professional debut at Santos Futebol Clube in 2009 and helped the team win the Copa Libertadores in 2011.

Internationally, Neymar was considered to be part of the Brazilian team at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa but ended up not being chosen for the squad. Instead, he made his international debut in August 2010, in a friendly against the U.S., where he scored his first international goal in Brazil’s 2-0 victory. He scored four goals for Brazil in the 2013 Confederations Cup, including the team’s 3-0 victory over Spain in the final, and won the ‘Golden Ball’ as the tournament’s most valuable player, as well as the ‘Bronze Boot’ as the third top scorer.

He was the star player for Brazil when his country hosted the 2014 World Cup, scoring four goals in five games before being knocked out of the competition with a fractured vertebra in the quarter-finals. Without the team’s most important player, Brazil lost by a surprising 7-1 margin to Germany in the semifinals. Neymar won the ‘Bronze Boot’ despite his early exit from the tournament. At the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, he led the Brazilian team to its first Olympic gold medal, scoring the winning penalty in the final match against Germany.

In 2017, Neymar transferred to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for €222 million, which made him the most expensive player at the time, and he played for the club until his contract ended after the 2022-2023 season. In August 2023, Neymar completed a transfer to the Saudi Arabian club, Al Hilal on a two-year contract and he made his debut in September, where they beat Al-Riyadh in a 6-1 thrashing.

Neymar has a son, Davi Lucca, born August 13, 2011, with his former girlfriend Carolina Dantas. He began dating model and a social media influencer Bruna Biancardi in 2022, and they announced they were expecting a baby in a joint Instagram post in April 2023. The happy couple became parents to a baby girl, whom they named Mavie, on October 6, 2023.
