Neymar Jr.is teaming up with DJ Snake…
FIFA 19 is a new level of power playing in the popular EA Sports series, and the company enlisted powerhouses in sports and music to help promote the edition, situating soccer fans from around the world in head-to-head game competitions; with the 26-year-old Brazilian-born forward paired with DJ Snake.
Neymar Jr. currently plays for DJ Snake’s hometown team, Paris Saint-Germain F.C., and the “Taki Taki” deejay/producer considers Neymar Jr. his favorite player.
“When you’re playing against the greatest, you can’t really prepare,” he says. “You already know he’s going to beat you…I have so much respect for him. The way he plays, it’s like he can see what’s going to happen before it does. [He’s] always ahead. We are very lucky to have him at PSG.”
The friendly pair met at PSG stadium, which DJ Snake says is like a “second home.” He’s in their dressing room after every match. It was nice for the pals to get some hang time, and they also had a chance to meet with some local kids who admire their work as professionals both on stage and on the pitch.
FIFA 19 is available now.
