Freestyle football competition – level 3

25-11-2014 15:00

Want to see some fancy footwork, well check out Andrew Henderson’s moves as he’s just won his first Red Bull Street Style World Final title.

The Brit showed off his moves in Brazil’s Salvador, beating contestants from 44 countries.

“It’s been my dream to win this competition since I heard about Red Bull Street Style, since I knew there was competitions in freestyle. I did it for everyone back home, everyone that’s supported me and I’m so happy, so happy right now.”

The freestyle tournament allows competitors the chance to show off their skills in a head-to-head playoff for three minutes with one ball.

Henderson’s performance at the end of his time earned him a separate award for best trick.

Difficult words: fancy (cool), support (help or encourage), tournament (a series of contests).
