Episode notes

Jack Downer could nutmeg you in a telephone box. The street football star is a multiple-time Panna champion and has even put the ball through Neymar's legs, but 18-months ago he was on the brink of death after a freak football accident.

In this episode of All You Need Is A Ball: The Official Podcast of the World Football Freestyle Association, Jack reveals to host Daniel Rooseboom how he got in to Panna and how he took inspiration from Vikings during his recovery.

Jack is now fully recovered but it could have been so different. Hear his incredible story here.
