Copa América Centenario 2016 and UEFA EURO 2016 are in full swing, and Facebook Messenger users can now play some soccer, too.

Facebook introduced Keepy Up on Messenger to users of the iOS and Android applications worldwide, and it provided the following instructions in an email to SocialTimes:

You can play with your friends in the Messenger app by sending the soccer emoji in an open Messenger thread and tapping on it to begin the game. The more times you tap the ball to keep it in the air, the more points you will get. Your high score will be shared with the friend or friends you’re playing with in the Messenger conversation.

The social network released a similar basketball game for Messenger in March, and it said in its email that more than 1 billion games were played in fewer than 90 days.

Readers: Are you ready to get your kicks?
