There’s so much more to football than an 11-a-side game on a grass pitch. In today’s video, we’d like to introduce the top freestylers who thrill the crowds wherever they go.

These wizards with the ball are fitted out with skills and technique to match any leading pro in the world. Their speciality and passion is juggling with the ball, and they’re incredibly good at it too. The spectators at their shows regularly break out into storms of applause.

However, this performing art demands punishing training routines and reserves of ambition, coupled with creativity and the approach of a showman.

Our cameras attended a freestyle event and captured the spectacular action just for you. Prepared to be amazed and entertained by the range of tricks and gravity-defying skills produced by the top performers.
