We all know some of the world’s top footballing talent are sponsored by Adidas but now the three-striped giant has made an advert to inspire those playing ‘on the streets, pitches and parks across the world’ to make their own impact on the world’s most popular game.
Featuring Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Thomas Muller and Mesut Ozil, the video films some of the world’s greatest players showcasing their skills before a slick five-a-side goal is converted to hit home Adidas’ ‘create something new’ message.
It may be a far cry from the small-sided games we’ve all played on cold dark nights down at the local astroturf pitches but we have to give it to the sportswear giant, they know how to market themselves, and the stars who wear their famous brand on the pitch.
