Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL right now and is a once in a generation talent that could seriously dominate the league for the next decade.

Beckham is also pretty gifted in another sport.

The New York Giants star is an exceptional soccer player and he showed that earlier this year, when he went for a kickabout with Bayern Munich stars Xabi Alonso and David Alaba. Scroll down to watch the footage.

As part of the world tour he seemingly went on with the NFL this summer, Beckham rocked up in Germany and hooked up with some of the Bayern boys. Here's how it went...

Odell is actually good! This should come as no surprise to those that know he was invited to try out for the United States age group teams as a teenager, but still, wow. 

The former LSU star showed off a lovely little flicked first touch and then appears to bend a free kick perfectly over the plastic wall and right into the top corner. 

It turns out that Beckham and Alaba are actually good friends, which is one of the oddest sporting friendships we've seen in a while.

We wonder if it's possible to loan a player from one sport to another during the NFL offseason? Some managers might be checking the rulebook after seeing that video.
