Castrol Footkhana

Ever heard of footkhana? No, we haven’t either.

Apparently, it combines world-famous driving with world-famous football skills in a head-to-head competition of man in a machine versus man and his feet. Apparently.

Which is a somewhat round-the-houses way of saying that, with the World Cup fast approaching, WRC driver Ken Block, Brazilian soccer star Neymar and Castrol got together to make a fun video.

Block uses his power sliding Ford Fiesta to not only score goals, but to try to prevent the Barcelona striker from doing so. Really!

And the result of the world’s first footkhana match?  Well, we won’t spoil it for you, so you will have to go here and take a look.

“Never in a million years did I think I’d ever be trying to score goals with my Ford Fiesta, but it actually was a ton of fun for both of us,” said Block.

Block is scheduled to make his only WRC appearance of the season at Rally de España in October.
