Nowitzki goes football


After a "below-average" season with the Mavs, Dirk decided to turn to football....

...but only for a charity match of his friend Manuel Neuer (FC Bayern and goalkeeper of the German National team) and friends.

Dirk Nowitzki -

THE highlight from/of Dirk in that particular match was that you can see HERE that he (nearly) got tackled in the box, fell and .... got the penalty! Worst dive ever! Well after the match he told that the hit the ground with his foot in that scene ("The foot still hurts"), however seconds after, he hammered the ball into the top, right corner - impossible to save for the goalie.


Well, we had a good laugh and wanted to share the video.
