He would chase after balls at any risk, and instead of the typical stuffed animal, he slept with a soccer ball. She recalls that, at one time, he had as many as 54 soccer balls in his bed. Pai remembers being amazed that even at three years old, Neymar would play ball with his feet instead of his hands. In the cramped house the family shared with his grandparents, Neymar would contrive drills in the narrow ways between furniture and walls. He used his sister and cousins as defenders and goalkeepers. He played with the older boys in the streets using whatever they could find to use as a ball. He has stated, “They were very dismissive, the other boys. ‘Who is this little kid?’ But I managed to convince them to let me play that first time, and I scored a goal. That changed their attitude. That changed everything.” He was only four or five, but he was building the skills and agility which would one day captivate the world.
