Across Europe, soccer (or rather, football) fans are glued to their TV screens day and night, watching the continent's best duke it out for Euro 2016 glory. If you fall into that camp, you'll be pleased to know that Facebook has added a "secret" minigame to Messenger in a similar vein to its basketball time-waster. To get started, you simply need to send the football emoji in a conversation. Facebook will then launch the hidden game, which has you performing keepy-uppys with your fingers. It seems simple at first, but stringing together more than a dozen is surprisingly tricky.
