New Delhi, May 15 (IANS) Youtube is filled with videos of football stars dribbling their way out of tight situations and doing a number of tricks with the ball while in training or during warm-ups and sometimes, in matches itself. However, it would be hard to find any videos of football stars juggling the ball while wearing high heels.
Which is exactly what a freestyle footballer is doing in a video that has gone viral on Twitter. The 50-second long clip features Raquel Benetti juggling the ball in stilettos.
Benetti is a popular freestyler with over 1.2 million followers on her Instagram handle. She has posted a number of videos herself of her performing in high heels. One of those videos had gone viral when she posted it in 2016. That video showed her doing so beside a pool while this showed her juggling in the corridor of a building.
Football action around the world has come to a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic. While a number of leagues have been cancelled with differing results — including the French Ligue 1 — the German Bundesliga is set for a restart this weekend. England’s Premier League and the Spanish La Liga are also looking for ways to move towards a restart with individual training resuming in Spain after players were tested for COVID-19
