Odell Beckham is the NFL’s only true global superstar, and he’s arguably its best all-around athlete. Beckham immortalized himself on the football field with his internet-shattering one-handed catch against the Cowboys, but has also gone viral for crushing legit BP home runs before an MLB game, and throwing down NBA dunk contest quality dunks.
OBJ is also a huge soccer fan, and went on the F2 Soccer podcast a couple years back to run through some training drills on the pitch. It turns out he’s a freaking natural at the other football, too. During the session, Odell looked more like David Beckham by effortlessly bending in a free kick, hammering home crosses, and pulling off a ridiculous trick penalty. Soccer fans have always argued NFL or NBA stars wouldn’t dominate their sport. OBJ picked it up in like 5 minutes.
