Football’s a game made up speed, strength, skill and more. And everyone’s got a story about how they could’ve made it pro. Or tales about their old left peg. But nothing says ‘you don’t have that much skill on the ball’ like watching a football freestyle competition. So that’s just what we did.
Last week we stepped out to catch the World final of the planet’s premier freestyle football tournament – Red Bull Street Style. Hosted in the United Kingdom for the first time it saw men and women from over 40 nations reveal their biggest and newest tricks at the Roundhouse in Camden, with the hope of going home with the World Championship title. The Argentinian freestyler, Carlos Iacono, triumphed in the men’s event and Mélody Donchet took the women’s category.
