It seems Facebook getting in, in all the football craze generated by Copa America Centenario 2016 as well as Euro 2016. This is after the social media network unleashed yet another hidden game to its popular messaging app. Following up to the secret chess and basketball games, is now a football (or soccer) game that you can make use of right within your chat window.

All you need to do is enter the football emoji into a new message and send it to anyone you want to take part in a friendly match with you. From the message thread, tap the ball emoji to start playing. There’s not much to it, simply tap continuously on the ball to keep it bouncing. From the chat window, you can also see who got the highest scores.

The only requirement to play the hidden ball game, is to have the latest Messenger version installed or update the one you already have.
