Soccer players Neymar, Marcelo and Willian will provide their own coverage of the Soccer World Cup. On their Youtube channels, the players of the Brazilian team will share their points of view as they take part in the competition.

Since the beginning of this week, a team of three professionals has been working in London to produce content for Marcelo's channel, which already has over 700,000 subscribers.

The professionals of the Real Madrid player's team expect to show five episodes on the Internet channel before Brazil's first match in the World Cup. The national team's first match is scheduled for June 17, when Brazil will play Switzerland in Rostov.

Neymar also began to warm up his fans for the World Cup. Since last week, the Paris Saint-Germain striker's channel has uploaded daily statements made by his former coaches.

On Tuesday, June 5, Rogério Micale was the main attraction in one of his videos. Micale coached the Brazilian team in the campaign that led them to win an Olympic gold medal for the first time in the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Willian is likely to start his channel before the beginning of the World Cup.

Despite the restrictions imposed by Fifa, the world's governing body of soccer, on the recording of images of practice and matches, the producers of the three channels already have hours of interviews on camera and are likely to use the athletes' days off to collect even more material before the begging of the competition in Russia.
