Upon its inaugural success last year, Neymar Jr.’s Five is back in the search for the next Malaysian representatives to be flown to World Finals at Instituto Projeto Neymar Jr. in Brazil.
Starting this April and for the very first time, the tournament commences and is open to teams of five to seven players aged 18 to 25 with two over-aged players allowed in each squad while national Finals will be held on 20th May in iM4U Sentral.
“The tournament reminds me of my childhood and I am very proud of it. To win the five-a-side games and outplay them all, you need strategy and a good understanding of when the best moment is to attack and defend. A good defence is very important as it can bring your team very far in the tournament,” said Neymar Jr.
