Bas van Velzen: knuckleball king!

No it’s not David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Steven Gerrard, it’s a 19-year-old Dutchmen named Bas van Velzen.

This kid’s YouTube clip has recently gone viral thanks to his exceptional ‘knuckleball’.

Watch as his incredible touch moves the ball side to side, up and down, and all around.

He was asked why he plays in a social Sunday afternoon competition, to which he answered:

“Well, i play amateur football with my friends – i play No. 10. It’s like your Sunday League football – we have a lot of beers after. If i lost a lot of weight, i could maybe be a professional one-day. I guess i might have to stop drinking beers first”

Seems to make a bit of sense…
