Neymar Skips Football Award Ceremony, Plays CS:GO Instead
The 28-year-old Brazilian was visibility upset after being snubbed from the finalists for ‘The Best FIFA Men’s Player 2020’ which was eventually won by Robert Lewandowski yesterday. After being left out, Neymar had tweeted in Portuguese something along the lines of since Tennis and Basketball did not workout for him, he was now a gamer!
It was an indirect take by Neymar as he was upset over the fact that he did not make it into the top-three. Multiple Brazilian esports teams, players, and personalities had responded to this particular Tweet, the most notable being FURIA. If that was not enough to show how upset Neymar was he even named his yesterday's stream "The Best of CS:GO" as sign of rebellion.
Everyone knows that Neymar likes gaming especially the classic tactical shooter CS:GO. He has been seen enjoying the game before with famous Brazilian players like Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and Marcelo “coldzera” David among many others.
Having finally started his own Twitch channel in October this year, Neymar already has more than 1.1 million followers which is mostly a Brazilian crowd as the player always streams in his regional language. He also interacts quite a lot with the gaming community and despite having a packed schedule always finds time to stream every now and then.
He might not be a hard core gamer but he packs great skills with some of his clips from playing CS:GO going viral. Not only does he have a sharp aim, but also has an incredible game sense along with a fantastic personality which automatically makes him an entertaining streamer to follow.
