Photographer's Note

Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior is a big soccer star, a player who has won most nominations and championships at the age of 19..In Brazil he is a hero for adults but most for all children..
Soccer is been played at the Copacabana Beach on a daily basis, non stop, during the day and during the night..
Little boys like the one in my picture are dreaming to become a future Neymar or close enough...
On a stroll in Copacabana, scenes like this are a usual daily event. I asked the little boy who is his favorite soccer player and he said "Neymar", then he went back to his ball playing..
It is very nice to see that passion and love for soccer in Brazil, a love that is way beyond and above any standards in any other country!
Now that the War of Nations (World Cup) is over, everybody is back to normal and to their soccer playing as usual.
Watching everybody playing soccer, trying to maximize their performance and achieve their goals is amazing and it all starts right here in this country..
The football was born in England but it was raised in Brazil and those little children are the living proof of that.
