A Swiss TV station studied the total amount of time the player has spent on the ground so far during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia: 14 minutes.
But despite the entertainment value, it also sparked public health concern that impressionable kids would follow suit—a fear that was not misplaced, apparently. Kids are now practicing “The Neymar” during training.
