From time to time a new hero is born in Brazil. The best soccer player becomes, in a short period, responsible for the joy of a soccer-powered people. The chances of winning the next World Cup are in his hands. And now there is a love story with a country where the top scorer is king.
And the flavor of the month is Neymar Junior, Santos’ striker. Son of a former player, the boy managed to dodge the traps in the soccer player career, and is said to be the hope for Brazil in 2014.
A few hours photographing the new idol were enough to realize that a well constructed line of defense off the field, with well-meaning relatives and advisers is as important as the talent of the boy to become a great champion indeed.
