Since its inception, PUBG has gone berserk among gaming fans. PUBG is one of the most popular games all over the world and celebrities from all over the globe are often seen enjoying a session after taking out time from their busy lives.
However, footballers are not far behind, a lot of top footballers are very much into gaming.

Players like Mesut Ozil, Ousmane Dembele and even Neymar do spend a lot of time playing games.
There’s hardly anyone who does not enjoy a game of PUBG with friends and therefore footballers are no different.

The Brazilian forward is a modern-day icon of the game and as much as he toils hard on the pitch, Neymar is equally dedicated to gaming. The Paris Saint-Germain star is often seen posting pictures or clips from his PUBG or Fornite achievements.
Neymar is so much into gaming that he spent his New Year’s eve playing games. The former Barcelona man is often seen indulging in banters with his teammates over Fornite, PUBG or sometimes even FIFA. So if Neymar decides to have an alternative career option, then gaming is the one.

The 26-year old is nicknamed as ‘La Joya’ which means Jewel and it is mainly due to his exploits on the pitch.
