If the whole soccer-playing thing doesn't work out, Felix Passlack can at least turn to freestyle juggling with chewing gum.
Felix Passlack is a rising star for Borussia Dortmund and Germany's national team (and close friends with USA's Christian Pulisic), but if the whole soccer-playing thing doesn't work out for the 18-year-old midfielder, he can at least turn to freestyle juggling with chewing gum. That's right.
Prior to Dortmund's DFB Pokal match against Union Berlin, which Dortmund won in penalties to advance, Passlack turned in a masterful keepy-uppy performance in pregame warmups. His control was immense, instincts on point and perseverance prevalent when he failed to catch the gum in his mouth on the first try, only to make a miraculous save and nail it on the second.
Watch the light moment–and Passlack's "did you see that?" grin–below.
Passlack played the first 100 minutes of the match after pulling off the stunt.
He's appeared in eight matches for Dortmund this season.
