Huge Hungarian success in Brazil: a soccer team made of Hungarian university students won Neymar’s amateur soccer world championship, reports

Amateur soccer teams from more than 40 countries went to play in Praia Grande, Brazil so that they could prove themselves at Red Bull Neymar Jr’s Five in front of the soccer legend himself. In the 2019 season over a hundred thousand players, aged 16-25 participated. Those who won the national games got to compete on July 12 and 13 in Brazil.

The rules of the matches stayed true to those of the ground soccer style that Neymar used to play as a child on the streets of Sao Paolo. The matches of the teams of five last a maximum of 10 minutes, and they do not have a goalkeeper. If a team scores a goal, the other team loses a member.

The Hungarian Zsírkréták were there in the finale; they proved to be the best in Hungary once again, as they did last year, and got to represent Hungary in the Brazilian soccer star’s home again.
