120,000 Neymar Masks Were Distributed In Brazil Before The World Cup Semifinal

The Brazilian star player won’t be playing due to injury, but expect to see about 60,000 cutouts of his face in the stands during the host country’s match against Germany.

1. Neymar will not play Tuesday in the World Cup semifinal vs. Germany after suffering a spinal cord injury in the team’s quarterfinal match vs. Colombia. However, the Brazil star will not be totally absent from the action at Estadio Mineirao.

2. A group of Brazilian ad agencies banded together to produce and hand out 120,000 Neymar masks ahead of Tuesday’s semifinal.

The agencies also created a website where fans can download their own mask and share their support with the hashtag #SOMOSTODOSNEYMAR (We are all Neymar).

4. With Brazil’s fans expected to dominate the stadium stands in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday, the question is: How many Neymars will pack Estadio Mineirao? (The arena holds more than 60,000 people).
