Probably the world’s #1 football club Manchester Utd is revered in football circles. We went behind the scenes at their Carrington training ground to film this Manchester Utd vs Freekickerz challenge between Youtube sensations Freekickerz, from Germany, and Manchester Utd players Di Maria, Rojo and De Gea with Falcao who was injured supporting his team mates.
This video is part of a series we filmed for bwin including Bayern Munich and Juventus. There is also an accompanying series produced by The Creative Grid called Insider which features Anderlecht in Belgium and Bayern Munich.
This challenge features our old favourite “Target Practice” where players have to put the ball through the hoops to score points. The smaller the hoop the harder it is and the more points you receive. Di Maria is famous for the Rabona, which is a difficult skill to master like a reverse kick with your standing foot. He takes on the crossbar challenge against Marco from the Freekickerz and finally we go for our classic Freekick challenge with a dummy wall and goalkeeper.
We’ve had a great time filming with the guys from the Freekickerz team. Check them out on Youtube if you like football. Over 2 Million subscribers, an incredible story in itself.
