You Know Ball — Meet The King Of Soccer TikTok

For years, soccer fans have played pub trivia and quizzed their friends on seemingly obscure knowledge they possess about the beautiful game. They use the phrase, “you know ball” to refer to anyone who seems to know what they’re talking about. But there has never been a person who knows ball quite like Eric Franck.

Eric Franck, or @bigmassiveeric, is a Canadian TikTok creator who has found a tremendous amount of success using his unbelievable knowledge of soccer players, teams and flags for self-imposed challenges on his page. He uses filters that display random countries and then builds teams using players from those countries or a combination of other filters or stipulations.

The result is a genuinely ridiculous team of the most obscure players you’ve never heard of, and he does this every single time. 

@bigmassiveeric Sorry for the fact I didn’t stop talking but here is some African football education! #soccer #football #fyp #foryou ♬ La Câlin(快手最火) - 笑匠&音源&十八闲客

He doesn’t brag or get into debates with other users, he just peacefully talks about soccer and shows off his astounding abilities, something we could use more of on social media. 

@bigmassiveeric Love a bit of waffling on about the biggest tournament in sport #soccer #football #worldcup #fyp #foryou ♬ original sound - Eric Franck ⚽️

How does he do it? We may never know. Since he’s been on TikTok, he’s amassed more than 126,000 followers and a whopping 4.3 million likes on his page. With collaborations and other endeavors, it looks like the king of soccer TikTok is here to stay.
