Ken Block and Neymar team-up for new Footkhana video

By Deeq on 25 Apr 2014

Attached Image Rally icon Ken Block has teamed up with Barcelona FC and Brazilian national football-squad star, Neymar Jr, to create the Footkhana film.
Based on the popular Gymkhana videos that were pioneered by Block, Neymar Jr's skills and focus are put to the test as Block guides his Ford Fiesta rally car around the footballer in a series of sideways manoeuvres and tyre smoke. Meanwhile, Block matches the Brazilian star's precision by saving and scoring a number of goals with his Fiesta.

Freestyle footballers Andrew Henderson, Sean Garnier and Lassi Hurskainen also teamed up with the pairing to demonstrate their skills under the guidance of double FIFA World Cup winner, Cafu.

"It has been amazing to work with Ken Block and the other freestylers," said Neymar Jr. "I can’t wait for football fans to see our freestyle tricks in action as we go head-to-head against Ken and his car.

Block was equally as enthusiastic about the outing and commented: "I know my fans are going to enjoy this Footkhana film since it's a spin on my Gymkhana series, integrating some of the best freestyle football players in the world.”
