WATCH: World amputee soccer players show off their crazy skills

There was some serious talent on show at the African Cup of Nations for Amputee Football last weekend.

WE “OOH” AND “aah” at the world’s biggest soccer stars when they display their nifty footwork on the pitch. The skill, practice, and dedication it takes to pull off some of the goals and precision passing at soccer’s highest levels is quite impressive.

Unlike traditional soccer players, though, the players featured in the video below don’t have all four of their limbs. They are part of World Amputee Football, whose goal is to “help fight discrimination and raise awareness of the issues facing disabled people.”

Watch a roundup of the African Cup of Nations for Amputee Football.
