Facebook Messenger is back with another hidden gem of a game, this time allowing you to kick (or poke) a soccer ball around with friends. Similar to Messenger's hidden basketball game, all you have to do is send an emoji to get the game going!

Here's how you can play Facebook Messenger's hidden soccer game

To get started, simply send a soccer emoji to one of your friends. After it's sent, all you do is tap the emoji and you'll be thrown into a game to see who can keep the soccer ball in the air the longest. Just tap the soccer ball as many times in a row without letting it touch the ground and hope you can net the highest score.

Do be warned: much like the basketball mini game, this one is pretty darned addictive. Be sure to give the game a shot and let us know in the comments what you managed to score!
