Watch out Neymar! Now roosters are playing soccer

In some cultures, roosters are sacred animals. In others, they’re feathery soccer players willing to kick the ball for some entertainment.

Usually they’re known for making a bit of fuss in the morning, but this rooster is far from the usual cockerel. You see, this bird loves a good game of soccer. Not watching it; playing it! Watch as this fine red rooster waits for the ball to come in front of him and then watch that foot action. There aren’t any marked goal nets in this yard but if there were, I have a feeling this feathery friend might beat everyone at a soccer match. This cock has got some serious skills!
