Born Neymar Da Silva Santos Junior, Neymar’s life is as poignant a story of overcoming obstacles that you'll ever come across. Born into a humble family, he rose like a phoenix to become one of the most sought after and praised player in the game of soccer. Born 5 February 1992, Neymar was a football prodigy from the very early days of life. However, his life was not an easy one.
Before he joined Santos FC and started earning steadily, his family did not have a single property on their name---not even a house! But this was much after the talisman improved upon his skill with street football and futsal. (Best inspirational quotes)
