MERCURIAL MINDED: NEYMAR JR.
For Neymar Jr., speed and style are at the heart of his game. His finessed footwork and devastating free kicks make him irreplaceable on the pitch, but his biggest strength is his unbreakable focus.
SPEED + SKILL
"You're always up against a fast full-back or a fast centre-back", Neymar says. "So, you have to use your head a bit more, you have to use your ability a bit more than just speed itself".
CALM IN THE CHAOS
Neymar has to stay composed in the chaos of a match to play at his best. "The head controls the whole body", he says. "If you are positive, things can go better than you imagine. But, when your mind is not clear, when you're not thinking straight, things can go wrong". That clinical focus is the inspiration behind Neymar's latest player edition Mercurial Vapor 'Silêncio'.
