This time Manchester United’s striker isn’t frequenting ladies of the night but seeking out the best young ‘street football’ talent. The return of Sky 1’s ‘Coke Zero’ Street Striker sees the United star judge the urban football skills of 24 young players from around the country in tests that include ‘Tower Block’ and the ‘Tyre Challenge’.
In episode one the competitors must trap five balls dropped from the balconies of the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th floors of a tower block and chip each into a skip. The best go through, the worst get eliminated. Then they all sup on gallons of a sugar-free pop with vegetable extracts, it doesn’t say in the press release.
‘Coke Zero’ Presents: Wayne Rooney’s Street Striker, begins Sunday 8 November, on Sky1 and Sky1 HD.
Here are some of Rooney’s best skills:
