Sacramento: When Mark Zuckerberg challenged Neymar to a keepy-uppy challenge most of us were like ‘Pfft, good luck Mark”.
But it turned out the Facebook guru actually meant the challenge to be taken on his company’s new Messenger keepy-uppy game. Which does level the playing field somewhat? First unveiled last month, to celebrate the start of the Euros , the game requires users to keep a football up in the air by tapping on their Smartphone screen.
It may seem simple, but it gets harder. After 10 successful taps it will start throwing in distractions to make it more difficult.
Zuckerberg, who by his own admission has “never won a soccer game in his life”, set Neymar a target of 37 keepy-ups to beat. He also challenged the Facebook founder to a game of REAL keepy-uppies.
