Footie’s Got Talent

SOME of the biggest names in football will be locking horns this summer to contest one of the most exclusive prizes in the game.
No, not the World Cup – A:3K Football, a Saturday night TV talent competition for professional footballers.
The gladatorial games, taking place at the O2 in London on July 17 and screened on ITV, will see Didier Drogba, David Villa, Cesc Fabregas and Steven Gerrard, as well as two more world superstars yet to be unveiled, taking part.
Rumours are these will be Christiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.
A skill-based event, rounds will include dribbling and shooting, repeatedly volleying shots at targets, maybe a game of wallie etc. etc.
However – and this is the best bit – the competition’s finale is a every man for himself match on a special circular black astroturf pitch, with six individual goals for each player to defend, and two balls to fight over.
It’s set to be playground football on steroids – and I can’t wait to watch.
