Xabi Alonso and Arturo Vidal have faced numerous challenges over their careers in both club and international play, but nothing quite like this. When the Bundesliga Giants were in New York as part of the International Champions Cup, the two stars took on a pack of 40 kids.
The children went with an unorthodox (and slightly illegal) lineup of three goalies, 17 defenders, 10 midfielders and 10 strikers.

This was a lot more fun to watch, the kids were relentless and if it wasn’t for the two-foot height advantage things might have been closer. I say that knowing if either of the stars kicked the ball with purpose there would be a kids dropping like bowling pins.
