Over the years, the F2 have teamed up with some of football’s finest players. From Steven Gerrard to Lionel Messi and Eden Hazard, their YouTube channel is littered with world-class athletes.
However, the work of Billy Wingrove and Jeremy Lynch isn’t limited to the ‘beautiful game’, at least in terms of whom they collaborate with.
Their latest recorded sporting masterpiece sees them dabble in both football and American football with the New York Giants’ very own Beckham Jr.
Given the 23-year-old’s inevitable link to soccer via his rather convenient surname, you’d think the wide receiver would be nifty with a ball at his feet also. You wouldn’t be wrong.
Despite Beckham Jr being most famous for his massive hands and outrageous catching skills, he was able to keep up with the F2 on their very own channel while still showcasing some NFL magic along the way.
Perhaps the most notable moment of the video comes when Beckham Jr, well, bends it like Beckham. Shooting from outside the penalty area, the American whipped a superb strike into the far top corner.
It may not have been a postage stamp finish, but brilliant nonetheless.
Furthermore, he can later be seen scoring a penalty with his left foot despite approaching with a right footed run-up. The piece of skill proved similar to that showcased by Thierry Henry in past Arsenal passing drills.
The fantastic video can be seen below with Beckham Jr’s free-kick being found at 3:40 and the spot kick trickery at 4:35, enjoy:
Amid Beckham Jr’s seamless transcendence between sports, there is of course the usual and mercurial antics of the F2 themselves.
The pair can be seen hitting the cross bar with an American football, pulling off no looks passes and Lynch even catching the ball with his leg alone. Incredible stuff.
However, props have to go to Beckham Jr who scored a goal even his namesake would have been proud of.
