Keepy-ups won’t win England the World Cup, but if they did, Marcus Rashford would be player of the tournament.
The England forward was filmed walking along with a ball at his feet ahead of the Three Lions’ game against Nigeria, demonstrating the sort of close control that a player of Rashford’s quality needs.
See if you can count how many he completes…

After a few counting efforts, it looks as though Rashford completed 192 keepy-ups while alternating feet, but not everybody agrees.
